Project Description

Originally a recreational complex, this project involved constructing a new,
adjacent building and connecting it to the existing facility via covered walkway. The new building’s colors were selected to match the existing colors and finishes, along with other similarities such as split-face CMU (with accent banding), a metal roof with brackets at the eaves and deep overhangs. Large areas of insulated glass on the North side were installed to allow light and views of the forest around the building.

New interior features include exposed roof joists with sloped ceilings, acoustical decking and acoustical wall panels. The design also includes a multi-purpose room (for 97 seated occupants), a catering kitchen, men’s and women’s restrooms and a mezzanine for mechanical equipment.
