Our Project
  • TW provided families in this new development with a state-of-the-art aquatic, fitness and community facility.
  • The center is a complex, three-level structure, combining integrated wood, steel, and concrete structural framing. Amenities include an elevator, fitness room and lockers, offices, conference space and a multipurpose room.
  • An expansive pool deck serves three swimming pools, a pool house and a concession stand.
Why Therrien Waddell?
  • TW was selected as the general contractor by the developer of the residential community based on:
    • Expertise with pool and community centers
    • Best-value proposal
    • Recommendation of the architect
Challenges and Results
  • Proximity of foundation footers in a small footprint required carefully orchestrated phased excavation and concrete pours.
  • A major midstream implementation challenge was coordinating utility provider schedules and changing requirements. However, clear communication and persistence kept the project schedule on track.
  • Despite critical HVAC design issues and tight installation constraints, the TW team resolved these complications through ingenuity and cooperation.
