By focusing on each individual club and their specific needs, Spectrum is approaching renovations in total of nearly $2.5 million for all 11 clubs.

The club did make several changes in the men's locker room, although most were not acknowledged as such by members. I hear a lot of complaints every day. There were beautiful wooden lockers that closed tight which were replaced with some type of plastic and formica combo that is open at the top ergo if you are using a top locker and something slides out, there is a good chance it will fall into the locker below creating a situation which requires an attendant to correct. All the tile on the walls was removed in favor of the same plastic material. The sauna update consists of adding wooden slats to cover the old tile. The new shower heads are nice but the architect chose to make the bottom rail of the stalls wider than before which creates a slippery suface entering and exiting and is problematic especially for any of the infirm and older folks who are regulars. The faucets in the sinks are motion controlled which makes it near impossible to keep the water running, and since there are no plugs in the sinks, shaving and rinsing said sinks is something of a challenge. All in all, money was spent, but it sure doesn't appear to be a million dollars, and much of what was done seems more like downgrades than improvements.
