Come watch construction take place on the new Wheatlands YMCA Recreation Center. A viewing platform has been constructed on the outside of the safety fence located on Wheatlands Parkway. The viewing platform allows you to see over the construction fence and watch as the building transforms. The platform faces what will be the main entrance to the building. So next time you are strolling by, feel free to stop, climb the stairs and watch the construction progress.
Here are some of the highlights on the construction:
Curb and gutter started – 50% of it in place for parking lot
Foundation is complete and we have all of the concrete poured!
Masons – 55% complete, finish structural masonry walls before steel shows up.
Pool slab poured
Starting to go vertical and putting up the masonry wall and vertical with steel
Something to look for at the site – If you see yellow and red barriers you will know what they mean. The yellow barrier is approach with caution and enter with caution for our construction teams. The red barrier is do not enter zone. These zones are marked off for safety especially as we have flying steel and the crane over the building.
