Rushforth Breaks Ground on Haselwood Family YMCA
Tacoma-based Rushforth Construction (AP Pacific Northwest) kicked off construction on the 85,784-sq-ft Haselwood Family YMCA in Silverdale, Wash. With completion expected next summer, the YMCA will be the first component of the 12-acre Central Kitsap Community Campus that will eventually offer many types of recreational and cultural activities.
The facility is expected to serve up to 15,000 community members with an aquatics center, wellness centers, exercise and multipurpose rooms, youth drop-in center, gym, community meeting rooms and nursery. The YMCA had planned the facility to be smaller, but a very successful fundraising campaign still underway will allow the building to be expanded. Rushforth used BIM to maximize the design and enhance construction efficiency.
