Westport Weston Family YMCA

ENHANCING COMMUNITY WELLNESS

YMCAs across the country seek to enrich communities through youth development and promoting healthy living and social responsibility. The Westport Weston Family YMCA (WWFY) located in Westport, CT has been a part of the community for nearly 100 years. The WWFY facility expansion project and campus renovation enhance both its indoor and outdoor programs. The project includes a 22,000 square foot, two-story addition to the existing building and adding 70 new spaces to the parking lot. The new addition will be used for a gymnastics program and wellness services. The WWFY’s 30-acre campus is also home to Camp Mahackeno. The campus improvements include a new outdoor swimming pool, pool house and splash pad. Other amenities were renovated and two giant slides were installed.

We provided geotechnical engineering and construction support services for the campus improvements and parking lot. Our services included performing subsurface explorations and testing and performing special inspections for foundations and earth support (soil nail wall). We provided geotechnical engineering analyses, design and construction recommendations, including a slope stabilization design concept using high performance turf reinforcement mats and engineered earth anchors for the “giant” slides to be installed on campus.
