Green Inside and Out: The Jackie Robinson Family YMCA

Wow! is the typical reaction of many visitors to the new Jackie Robinson Family YMCA located in Southeastern San Diego. It’s not just its state-of-the-art sports complex, gym, and community center that have won over the community, the facility’s environmental sustainability features have garnered accolades a well.

This YMCA was named an Energy Champion at our 13th annual Energy Showcase awards ceremony because it was designed with energy- and water-saving features inside and out. Only a dozen organizations earned the bragging rights as Energy Champions this year – for being the best of the best in energy efficiency, renewable energy use, and sustainability.

In addition, the US Green Building Council has certified the Jackie Robinson YMCA as a LEED Gold facility. LEED stands for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design.

We are proud of our partnership with the YMCA to design this facility with the latest energy efficiency innovations. Check out this short video to see how we worked together to make it happen.
