YMCA of Fox Cities
Scope: Renovation | Area: 3,600 sq ft | Completion Date: April 2021
Hoffman assisted the YMCA in planning a renovation that would bring the YMCA of the Fox Cities corporate offices to its Downtown Appleton location.
Hoffman also oversaw renovations that created a personal training area that is separate from the YMCA’s common wellness spaces. The new spaces were designed to offer staffing efficiencies as well as enhance member experiences. Splitting out the personal training area allows small group training sessions to have a dedicated space that won’t interfere with the general wellness spaces.
The remodel of the wellness area included 2,000 sq. ft. of space, combining an existing racquetball court and men’s fitness locker room to provide ample room for the YMCA’s personal training staff and equipment.
“The Hoffman team was integral in providing design options to meet our needs. All involved were supportive, flexible, and creative as we worked through the details of the renovation.”
Features include rubber and turf sport flooring, an industrial open ceiling system, and specialized equipment for individual or group performance training. The office renovation portion consisted of roughly 1,600 sq. ft. of offices, kitchen amenities, conference rooms, and storage areas. The remodeled space now houses the YMCA’s financial and I.T. staff.
The YMCA of the Fox Cities is also working with Hoffman to replace the Soldiers Square parking ramp located across the street from the YMCA’s Downtown Appleton facility. Hoffman has deconstructed the existing ramp and will oversee the design and construction of a new 311-stall ramp. The new ramp should be ready for use in 2022.
