A&P introduced ideas and value engineering thoughts that have been very helpful to our building committee and design team. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have A&P be our General Contractor on our 58,000 sf new facility.
Richardson, TX (PRWEB) December 05, 2014
Adolfson & Peterson Construction (A&P) was recently selected as the construction manager to build the new state of the art Park Cities YMCA, replacing the current 60-year-old facility on Preston Road.
Designed by Good Fulton & Farrell Architects, the new, larger complex will replace the current YMCA on the same site, but will measure up to 58,000 square feet. It will include more room for preschool classrooms, exercise space, locker rooms and lobby area, and will also have an indoor therapy pool and an underground parking garage.
The new facility will be named the “Moody Family YMCA in the Park Cities” in honor of an $8 million donation from the Galveston based Moody Family Foundation.
A&P has worked with the Park Cities YMCA building committee for the past two years coordinating planning with the local community and approval from the city government. A&P has extensive experience working in the Park Cities, having served as the lead contractor on an $80M school bond package which was completed in 2011.
“Our building committee chose Adolfson and Peterson to be our General Contractor for more reasons than just competitive pricing,” said John Bunten, who serves on the building committee and is a former board member for the Park Cities YMCA. “Those reasons are reputation, project management team, experience building in the Park Cities community and long-term loyalty to our Y and YMCA’s across the country. Additionally, A&P introduced ideas and value engineering thoughts that have been very helpful to our building committee and design team. We couldn’t be happier with our decision to have A&P be our General Contractor on our 58,000 sf new facility.”
The project is scheduled to begin construction in April 2015, with completion slated for Summer 2016.
