Shalom Austin – Dell Jewish Community Center

EEA provided MEP services for the Dell Jewish Community Center. The project spanned multiple phases and included the renovation and expansion of multiple existing buildings, along with the construction of new fitness, aquatics, and tennis facilities. 

The first phase featured the renovation of the 46,000 SF education building, including the lobby, kitchen, and various classroom spaces, as well as updating finishes, replacing HVAC and lighting systems throughout the entire building. This update improved the sustainability of the building, allowing it to continue operating as a daycare facility and place of learning for the community.

The second phase featured 42,000 SF renovations to the current fitness building. The community hall and performance center included the addition of a new portable telescoping seating system, new ballet and Pilates studios, offices, and high-end locker and spa amenities, including steam rooms and saunas.

The final phase provided a new 40,000 SF community and fitness building, which now serves as the main entry for the community center.  The building includes a new coffee shop, multi-purpose meeting rooms, an upgraded fitness center, and Shalom Austin’s offices. This phase also included an aquatics expansion and a new tennis facility with a lap pool, play pool, water slides, and concessions building, as well as six outdoor tennis courts.

EEA served as a subconsultant to The Beck Group on this project.
