Renovation on the building started in February and has seen substantial progress over the last few months including work on the new modernized locker rooms, the addition of three new unfiversal locker rooms, adding the frame for the second floor fitness center, expanding the lobby, and renovating the new location for the Kids Club babysitting room.
“We’re excited about the construction progress thus far and want to share our excitement with the community at large, members and non-members of our YMCA. We appreciate the outstanding work being completed by Turner and our sub-contractors,” said Bob McDowell, CEO of the Riverbrook Regional YMCA.
“We can’t wait for the building to be completed in the fall of 2019, and we look forward to expanding our impact on strengthening the well-being and health of our community,” he added.
Over the next few months, construction will continue with the new drop off zone, walking path from the bridge to the main entrance of the YMCA building and a new bubble, pool filtration and water heat exchanger, and moveable bulkhead for the 50-meter Melissa and Mark Nickel Memorial Pool.
No RSVP is required, the event is open and free to all community members.
