Kingsport Aquatic Center and Greater Kingsport Family YMCA
Location: Kingsport, Tennessee
Client: City of Kingsport and the Greater Kingsport Family YMCA
The City of Kingsport desired to develop a year-round aquatic facility that could also serve as a competition venue to host swim meets and increase tourism. The Greater Kingsport Family YMCA had plans for new recreation facilities that would offer the citizens of Kingsport and the surrounding area wellness/fitness training opportunities. In a wise collaborative effort, the City of Kingsport and the Greater Kingsport Family YMCA developed a partnership, and utilized a donated property from Eastman Chemical Company. The overall master plan for the facility has been developed to allow for both aquatic and wellness facilities to be expanded in the future. Lose & Associates was the prime designer for this two-in-one, $23 million project. Our firm developed preliminary and final designs, construction documents, bidding documentation, and cost estimates. We also provided project coordination and construction services for the facilities.
