Speight Marshall Francis designed the original YMCA facility in 2003 and was awarded an Award of Merit for Best Recreation/Entertainment Project. A phase 2 expansion was completed in 2006.
Speight Marshall Francis served as the Structural Engineer of Record for this new single-story, 46,000 square foot recreation center which opened to the public in 2003. The center includes a gymnasium, wellness center, natatorium, childcare center, lockers, administrative/offices, and storage space. This project was awarded an Award of Merit from Hampton Roads Association for Commercial Real Estate for Best Recreational/Entertainment project in 2003.
With the popularity of the Victory Family Branch YMCA came the need to expand facilities and add programs with a 14,075 sf addition to their facility in 2006. The phase 2 addition includes a 3,400 sf expansion to the existing wellness center, a new 1,350 sf aerobics studio, a 1,000 sf family activity center, and a 2,500 sf teen center with mezzanine. An adjacent suite houses a 3,060 sf physical therapy rehabilitation center with treatment areas, workout space, offices and connectivity to the wellness center expansion. This suite is run by Mary Immaculate Hospital and has its own dedicated entrance which complements the main entrance to the existing YMCA facility.
