Friday was engaged by the Plymouth Township Recreation Commission to conduct an extensive facility expansion study. The existing building was a heavily used recreation and community center, which includes a large gymnasium, indoor pool fitness center and community meeting rooms. Working with their operations consultant, our office organized an initial “goals and challenges” meeting and from that developed a detailed program analysis of existing spaces and future needs.
With this information determined, Friday prepared two conceptual plans for expansion and renovation of the building. Our structural and MEP consultant performed site visits to familiarize themselves with existing systems that would impact new work. Our design options were accompanied by cost estimates. This information was presented in a dynamic format using 3D computer models of the components of each scheme. This went a long way towards helping our client understand the complexities of each design.
