Keeping the Club up and running during the renovation on and adding on was important to this vital community service. Tonn and Blank worked with the Club to understand their schedule, daily activities, and challenges so that a comprehensive site logistics plan could be developed. This allowed for the project to stay on schedule but most importantly kept the Club members and the staff safe throughout the duration of the project. This project faced a few challenges, however Tonn and Blank was able to deliver this project slightly under budget.
Understanding the value of capital dollars for community projects, such as this, Tonn and Blank worked with the Club and the architect to value engineer items to make the most of the budget. Items included changing architectural precast to painted structural precast, polished concrete in lieu of ceramic flooring, exposed painted ceiling in lieu of ACT, and seal coat parking lot in lieu of new parking lot.
With the opening of the newly renovated facility, the Club saw an increase in summer attendance and is expecting record numbers this fall once school is back in session.
