Carlisle Family YMCA, Carlisle, PA
This multiple phased 81,181 gsf project transformed the Carlisle Family YMCA, to better serve their growing community by replacing outdated and aging spaces with fun, welcoming and energy-efficient program spaces for all ages. Since 1859, YMCA has been the heart of the community serving more than 10,000 people. Portions of their facility date to 1899, with all the problems that can come with an older building. Murrays partnered with Mowery Construction for this design-build project and the center remained operational during all the construction.
Phase I removed the 19th-century school building and squash/racquet ball courts for a two-story addition for new entrances, lobby, multipurpose youth and meeting spaces, a teaching kitchen, plus a large new a state-of-the-artWellness Center. Phase II consisted of another two-story addition to house multiple fitness, yoga and cycling studios, the new administration suite, and a new childcare center which will increase its enrollment by 30%. New locker rooms, interior renovations, and a large parking lots were also a part of the project. The energetic and fun interiors were designed utilizing the YMCA’s branding color pallet, creating a new dynamic member experience.
