Grand Forks Community YMCA
Grand Forks, North Dakota
In 2003, the YMCA wanted to expand their offerings in weightlifting and cardiovascular equipment. The wood floor was refurbished at the lower gymnasium with a new skywalk with large viewing windows connecting to the new cardiovascular room. In 2011, JLG was retained to complete a major renovation to the facility and help upgrade the interiors to reflect the new corporate YMCA branding. A new weight room was added to a remodeled cardiovascular area by infilling with a new floor above three of the old raquetball courts. The three old racquetball courts and adjacent old weight area were remodeled to create a new fitness studio level. To make for a more efficient and welcoming experience, the entire lobby area was also remodeled as part of the project. The end result is a facility that is user friendly, provides excellent service to the clientele, and meets the current branding vision of the YMCA.
