This new 72,500 square foot facility opened in November 2009 much to the delight of the Waukee community. This YMCA is not just a state-of-the-art facility - it provides for relationships with individuals, schools, local government, non-profits and churches. This in turn creates a thriving community of people committed to strengthening and improving health and quality of life for all.

Wolin worked diligently through the programming phase to ensure the long term success of the facility. Providing totally integrated MEP Design Build Systems, the facility achieved a 58% reduction in energy consumption as compared to the old YMCA.

The Geothermal system heats the pool, as well as heating and cooling the entire facility. High efficiency lighting was installed throughout. A heat recovery system was incorporated into the pool dehumidification system. All of these design strategies, coupled with Utility Rebates, provided the YMCA a simple 3 year payback of its investment.
