FleischmanGarcia was retained to design the West Pasco Gills' Branch YMCA, a state-of-the-art facility in all regards.
At nearly 31,000 sq. ft., the building is centered around a fitness center overlooking an expansive exterior pool area. The facility features two pools-a competitive lane pool and a combination lane and "zero depth entry" pool with water sculptures. For children, there is a Kids' Gym apparatus showcased behind large glass walls and adjacent to babysitting services.
To create an environment of maximum user comfort this YMCA incorporated new mechanical technologies designed to reduce relative interior humidity to levels as low as five to ten percent.
Renovations were later completed that expanded and remodeled the lobby and administrative areas, updated the locker rooms, added a new, expanded teen center and installed porcelain tile throughout the facility's corridors. The 1,680 sq. ft. teen center features plenty of comfortable areas for lounging around with friends, watching TV, playing music, surfing the internet or enjoying a challenging game of pool.
