With the exceptional growth in Katy, Texas, the existing Katy YMCA was quickly reaching capacity, and the need for a second YMCA was necessary. This two-story YMCA, located at Katy Main Street, features a double-height lobby with visual connection to many activities, right from the front door. It includes an outdoor pool with a splash area, an outdoor playground, group exercise rooms, a strength cardio room, a community multi-use space, a child watch area, and locker rooms. The project meets Kirksey’s basicGreen benchmarks for sustainability through the use of durable and local materials such as polished concrete. The tilt-wall construction allowed for a more cost-effective project and was ultimately designed to be expandable, should the need for a larger Y arise in the future.
