“Opening the City Center YMCA was the result of volunteers, staff, the Wohlsen team and the community joining together around a shared commitment to nurturing kids, promoting healthy living and fostering a sense of social responsibility.
“At the Y, strengthening community is our cause. Every day, we work side-by-side with our neighbors to make sure that everyone, regardless of age, income or background, has the opportunity to learn grow and thrive. We wanted this building to not only have a positive impact on our community, but also our environment. We selected a brownfield site in the City of Lancaster, incorporated many environmentally conscious design features, used high amounts of recycled building materials, and installed mechanical systems that lowered overall energy consumption.
“What proved so valuable to us during the preconstruction phase were Wohlsen’s green building expertise and leadership in running multiple cost evaluations to help us create something special within our critical budget constraints.
“Throughout the project, Wohlsen was part of our team. Their professionalism, expertise and knowledge of green construction methods helped to advance the Y mission while being good stewards of community resources.”
