Richard G. Snyder YMCA Campus

  • Project: New Recreational Facility 
  • Owner: Armstrong County YMCA 
  • Location: Kittanning, Pennsylvania 
  • Architect: RSSC Architecture  

The Armstrong County Family YMCA contracted Landau Building Company to build a new 27,200 SF facility, replacing their antiquated recreational center. The new two-story building was constructed a few blocks north of the old facility on North Water Street in Kittanning, PA. The facility has a family pool, a lap pool, and a warm water pool intended for therapy. Areas for yoga, Pilates, and childcare programs also have been incorporated into the facility. The seven acre property was formerly a concrete block manufacturing plant, so major site improvement and clean-up work was necessary. The project was completed in twelve months, allowing for a June 1, 2012 opening. Landau was able to push the completion date by strategically finishing areas in advance, which accommodated exercise equipment deliveries and installations, and by ordering long lead items during the design phase.
