HALL & HALL ENGINEERS, INC.
Helen G. Nassif YMCA: Cedar Rapids, IA
Novak Design Group retained Hall & Hall Engineers to provide civil engineering, landscape architecture and survey design services for the construction of a 40,000 sf facility in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. The facility contains a running track, swimming pool,various courts and fitness areas.
Our work included site planning, preparation of land entitlement documents, construction documents and construction administration. This facility is also located within a floodplain area which required special attention to flood proof detailing.
HHE was an integral component on the design team to fit the facility within a one square block area while maintaining an existing nearby business. An alley was required to be vacated and sanitary sewer re-routed to provide the necessary land area to fit this facility. Reconstruction of 7th Avenue SE and associated streetscape components, parking lot expansion and service vehicle access were also design obstacles that were overcome by the HHE team.
