#WorksiteWednesday The North Bank Playground Site is taking shape. Aerial imagery shows the new roof on the picnic pavilion, the graded basketball courts, curbing around the playground, the concrete wall separating the playground and the skate park, the west wall of the O&M building going up and a very busy construction site. Rough grading and curbing at the parking lot has also been started.

As the War Memorial Field nears completion, there is huge progress every day. The numbers and lines are being cut into the turf surface, and the sports fields are taking shape. Once completed, the artificial turf will be ready for baseball, softball, soccer, and football, and the recreation department will also offer lacrosse play. The field design includes a new goalpost system with increased safety technology for the staff raising and lowering the posts between seasons.

Here are some construction photos from the Great Flood-themed North Bank Playground in Riverfront Park. ID Sculpture is on-site hand-carving some of the playground climbing walls. They have built plastic tents over the sculpting areas and have a team of 4-6 people in each tent scoring cutting and sculpting the rock to make it reflect our local geology. The skatepark, with two bowls, is also taking shape. Once they start pouring concrete and forming the bowls, the entire process will take about three weeks.

The updates to the City of Post Falls’ Black Bay Depot activity center are complete! We worked with the City of Post Falls Parks and Recreation to transform the building formerly housing the Senior Center Thrift Store into a dynamic, flexible activity center to meet their programming needs. Interior improvements included adding activity rooms, an entry area, public restrooms, and accessory storage rooms. Our landscape architects made improvements to the parking lot areas and designed a back yard community learning area.

Completed in 2009, the U.S. Armed Forces Reserve Center at Fairchild Air Force Base was designed for joint use by the U.S. Army Reserve and Washington Army National Guard. This design-build project with Garco Construction, Inc. consisted of six new buildings and a covered two-bay vehicle wash rack. Designers were tasked with fulfilling multiple facility needs in one project, from a community and event center to a flammable storage facility. The resulting complex checked all of the boxes and will serve FAFB’s needs for many years to come. The key to a successful design-build project of this size and scope is finding alternative solutions that meet and exceed individual requirements while maintaining the program budget and schedule.
