Wheeling Park District Community Reccreation Center Addition & Renovation
The existing CRC (Community Recreation Center) was originally constructed in 1992, with the Arctic Splash Natatorium and Fitness Center Addition being constructed in 1999. The Park District selected FGM Architects to review and update a previous Space Needs Analysis and then prepare a conceptual design that reflects the recommendations of the completed facility analysis. The final design includes approximately 48,000 SF of additions and renovations to a significant portion of the existing building spaces. The addition portion of the design includes a dedicated Preschool area, a larger fitness center, a new gymnasium, group exercise rooms, new fitness locker rooms, a new stair tower, and associated support, service, and corridor spaces.
Site improvements associated with the work include reconfiguring the existing parking lot immediately south of the existing building to provide a dedicated Drop-off and Pick-up arrangement for the Pre-School.
Camosy has enjoyed a long-term relationship with Wheeling Park District, working with the District since 2012. Camosy provided complete CM at Risk services for this project, including the Pre-Construction and Construction Phases. The Pre-Construction Phase of CM Services developed a detailed Cost of Construction Budget Estimate through progressively more detailed estimates as the project documents (drawings and specifications) were developed. The Pre-Construction Phase also included the preparation of a Construction Phasing Plan designed to minimize interruptions and inconveniences to the CRC operations during construction. Camosy also managed the entire Bidding and Contracting portions of this phase and held all contracts with subcontractors, and bonded the entire value of the project.
During Construction, Camosy provided all Project Management and Full-Time On-Site Field Supervision of the work in progress and managed warranty issues during the Warranty period.
