Richardson, TX (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
On Friday morning, March 7, a groundbreaking ceremony marked the official start of the new Community Activities Center (CAC) in Grapevine, TX. The expanded recreation and aquatics center will be a valuable asset to the citizens of Grapevine, TX. Adolfson & Peterson Construction is the general contractor, with Barker Rinker Seacat serving as the architect.
Located at 1175 Municipal Way, the current 48,000-square-foot facility will more than double with the addition of approximately 60,000 square feet. The proposed expansion will include a senior activities area, indoor aquatics, multi-purpose rooms, an expanded fitness room, and a central utility plant.
“Since the inception of our Community Activities Center, Grapevine has offered a wide variety of programs for all ages. With the opening of the all-new Multi-Generational Recreation Center in 2015, we will be taking programs and the overall quality of life in Grapevine to a whole new level,” said Chris Smith, City of Grapevine Recreation Superintendent. “Encouraging wellness, physical fitness, social interaction, and community involvement, this project, once complete, will be a place Grapevine residents will enjoy for many years to come."
“Adolfson & Peterson is eager to get started on this important project for all residents of Grapevine,” said Corbett Nichter, Senior Vice President for Adolfson & Peterson Construction and a Grapevine resident. “This groundbreaking marks an important step forward and follows many months of planning with the City of Grapevine and Barker Rinker Seacat Architecture.”
"Today is a banner day in the history of Grapevine as the Community Activities Center Expansion construction commences,” said Steve Blackburn, Principal with Barker Rinker Seacat. “From the outset, the project team desired to create a truly special multi-generational place which will enhance the quality of life for all residents in Grapevine, from children and youth to adults and seniors, by creating a year-round indoor aquatic center which will be second-to-none in the Metroplex.”
Construction will commence immediately with completion scheduled for the 2nd quarter of 2015.
