Located in McIntire Park, the new award winning 79,000 sf Brooks Family YMCA features a state of the art family aquatic center, basketball courts, elevated running track, exercise studios, and common areas. This new facility, completed in 2017, is centrally sited to serve the entire Charlottesville community. The YMCA is built into a slope to better convene with natural park surroundings.

Having a long successful past working relationship with VMDO Architects uniquely prepared F&R to be a significant part of the construction team, providing materials testing and special inspections on earthwork (considerably more complex due to the slope construction), cast-in-place concrete, reinforcing steel, masonry, structural steel and stone base.
