YMCA Buffalo Niagara | Lockport Family YMCA
This project consisted of constructing the new Lockport YMCA. The facility will include the following areas: a child adventure center, nutrition kitchen, wellness center, lap and indoor family pools, men’s and women’s locker rooms, a multi-sport complex with concession area, studios and a gymnasium.
The YMCA facility was built with the future – and expected membership growth – in mind. The adjacent site to the east and west of the building is prepped and ready for future expansion. Utilities and infrastructure were kept out of this area to eliminate the need to relocate them later. Green space to the east includes preliminary layouts for basketball courts, locker room facilities, pavilions, a splash pad, pool and ropes course with climbing wall. Although these amenities are not currently being built, planning them with the town now will ease the construction process when the time arrives. Lastly, the current construction produced excess fill and topsoil, all of which was used to the east of the building to create simple open playing fields with little cost impact.
