Renovation of Historic Pool and Gyms

Letterman Pool & Gyms, YMCA Presidio
San Francisco, CA

Army Letterman Pool, Letterman Gym and Main Post Gymnasium were originally built for use by men only.

The project converted these historic structures into fully-accessible facilities for men, women and families.

As project liaison, Hilliard Architects coordinated activities with the Presidio National Trust, ensuring compliance with The Secretary of the Interior’s Standards for Rehabilitation.

Waste management was a high priority: the successful bidder was required to submit an economically feasible plan for reusing, salvaging or recycling waste.

Materials included cardboard, land-clearing debris, clean dimensional wood, concrete, bricks, asphalt, drywall, carpet, plastics and metals.
