Fairview Heights, Illinois
Holland is serving as construction manager for this new 58,000 SF indoor/outdoor rec center for the City of Fairview Heights. Nearly 12,000 square feet of the recreation center will be dedicated to an indoor aquatic facility with a 25-yard multi-lane lap pool, children’s spray ground, slides, sprays, lazy river and a vortex. The center will also feature a 6,000-square-foot fitness center with areas for free weights, floor exercise, aerobic and group fitness; a gymnasium; a climbing structure; elevated running tracks; a 400-meter, six-lane running track; a game area for billiards, cards and table tennis; locker rooms; multipurpose and party rooms, and administration offices. Outdoor soccer fields, a dog park, pavilions, playgrounds and a 1.5-mile walking path and nature trail are also part of the plans.
“Other construction companies were certainly also qualified but we chose Holland not only for their experience, but also because it’s easy to work with them. Holland’s pre-construction department’s management of the estimating and subcontractor bidding process resulted in a project that met our goals for the recreation center within our budget. We’re confident in Holland to meet our ambitious construction timeframe.” -Angela Beaston, Director of Parks and Recreation, City of Fairview Heights
