Architect/Engineering Firm, Construction Manager Chosen for New Facility
Believing that form follows function and having moved through the development of a program-focused facility design, the Jackson YMCA has selected two organizations to round out its capital campaign design and construction team. The YMCA Board of Directors, acting on recommendations of its campaign Building and Design Committee, selected Granger Construction Co. as the project’s construction manager and Bergmann as the YMCA’s architect/engineer. The committee and both firms are working closely with Gro Development Inc., a leader in the development, design and management of YMCAs and other community-based facilities; samples of their YMCA work are available at www.gro-dev.com.
