Gilbane Building Company, a leader in construction services, joined community leaders and residents on Saturday, November 19, 2016 to celebrate the much anticipated grand opening of the Palos Heights Recreation Center.
Led by Gilbane's Douglas Lim as Project Executive and Jason Perkunas as Project Manager, Gilbane served as construction manager for the project. Made possible via a successful referendum in November 2014, this project included approximately 24,000 SF of additional space, as well as additional parking spaces. Interior components of this facility included a new gymnasium, fitness center, elevated track, and the renovation of the existing gymnasium and staff offices into a new multi-purpose room. Exterior components included parking, façade improvements to the existing building, and landscaping.
“We are thrilled to be celebrating the successful completion of this important project with the City of Palos Heights and our project partners.” said Douglas Lim, Vice President at Gilbane. “In celebrating the completion of this important community facility, we are thankful for the opportunities provided to us and proud to deliver successful projects to our local communities where we live and work.”
Throughout the duration of the project, Gilbane worked closely with the City Council, Building Committee, and the Administration to ensure the highest priority was placed on public protection and safety, while the existing recreational facility remained open during construction.
