Yukon Kuskokwim Aquatic Training & Health Center

The Yukon Kuskokwim Regional Aquatic Health and Safety Center (YKRAHSC) is a multi-use community facility owned and operated by the City of Bethel.  The project was a modified Design-Build contract in which UNIT served as Prime Subcontractor to Bethel Services, Inc., an Alaska Native Owned Contractor. 

The YKRAHSC, completed in October 2014, is 23,164 SF and includes the following amenities:

• Lobby / Concession Area
• Administrative Offices / Meeting Rooms
• Six-lane competition size swimming pool and ranges in depth from 7 ft. 4 in. to 3 ft. 6 in.
• Water slide - 14 ft. 4 in. high with 1.5 turns.
• Kiddie pool with wheelchair ramp entrance.
• Hot tub which can hold up to 17 adults.
• Gallery with tables and chairs for viewing swimmers.
• Exercise room equipped with six treadmills, a stair climber, dumbells, and kettle bells.
• Fitness room with mirrors and stretch bars for spin class, aerobics, ballet, karate, and other courses.
• Men's and Women's locker rooms with showers, lockers and bathroom amenities.

This project also included the installation of a Northwind 100 KW Arctic Wind Turbine which functions to provide renewable energy power for the facility.  The Turbine is 165 feet high with blades reaching 35 feet out.  It is the main power source for the building providing electricity, lighting etc...  The only thing not powered by the wind turbine is the temperature of the pool which is heated by diesel.

The YKRAHSC, built above ground on pilings, was constructed so that a gym, running track, and other facilities can be added in the future as additional funds become available.
