This 195,000-square-foot addition and renovation is a high-profile project and serves the growing metropolitan population. The project team is responsible for transforming the aging but iconic Dowd YMCA into a premier facility. The scope includes the construction of a multi-level fitness center, a new circulation spine that will link the new fitness center to the existing tower with multiple bridges. The addition will include an activated rooftop with turf. Critical components for the team to manage throughout construction include maintaining a viable facility, providing a high quality member experience, maximizing long-term value through life cycle cost decisions and implementing energy saving strategies.
