Greater Wilkes-Barre YMCA Renovations & Additions

Project Name

Greater Wilkes-Barre YMCA Renovations & Additions


Wilkes-Barre, PA

Project Description

Quandel served as general contractor during renovations and additions to the Greater Wilkes-Barre YMCA, a project which was complicated by the fact that the facility had to remain in use while construction took place. Through careful planning and time-efficient construction phasing, Quandel was able to successfully complete the project with minimal disruption to ongoing activity within the YMCA. Renovations included new men’s and women’s fitness centers, a new daycare, new college dormitory spaces, and a new state-of-the-art cardiovascular center. The facility’s new addition includes an Olympic-sized swimming pool and gymnasium.

Opened as a YMCA in October 1934, the building which houses the Greater Wilkes-Barre YMCA is located in the center of downtown Wilkes-Barre.

Extremely helpful in incorporating new features into our facility while maintaining the architecture of our existing building, Quandel delivered impressive results for a dollar amount we were able to fund. Quandel was also very professional in handling any problems which arose during construction, and their expertise was a great resource at our weekly job meetings. The new facility is helping us deliver a new level of service and comfort to all of our participants.
