STREATOR YMCA—WELLNESS CENTER ADDITION STREATOR, IL: 2018
Definable features of work:
Excavating / Footings / Foundation
Metal & Flat Roofing
Scope of Work: Design / Build project consisting of a 5000 SF new 1‐story building addition to facilitate a new Wellness Center (3400 SF), Youth Programming “Kid Zone” (1100 SF), Restrooms and Support Spaces. Site work included a reconfigured parking and vehicle access from Oak ST, which solved safety and ADA accessi‐ bility issues with the existing site.
The design and construction goal was to provide an addition that fit the existing context of the facility in material and proportion. The design / build project delivery meant that Troop worked with the Architect to ensure budget compliance at each design phase (and conducted constructability reviews). Also, Troop was able to work with suppliers to find material matches during design.
In addition to a new Wellness Center, a 1100 SF Youth Programming space was built to house interactive gaming systems. Youth will be invited to work as a team, have fun, and exercise without realizing it.
The Wellness Center was designed to operate as a 24/7 accessible space.
