Potranco YMCA

A 55,000 sq foot interior renovation of an old grocery store facility. Kopplow completely demolished the interior and removed a large portion of the existing slab and entry feature to accommodate the new design. New work included the adding of new roof joists to facilitate a full court basketball gym and a large interior excavation for the installation of two new pools. New locker rooms, shower facilities, dance studios, and exercise areas were also included. An existing mezzanine area incorporated the additional exercise areas by adding new access stairs as well as housing the pool HVAC equipment. The exterior facade was redone with steel trellis work, metal paneling, wood paneling, cutting in additional windows around the entire perimeter, and painting the existing CMU walls along with new flatwork and landscaping along the front of the building. Included within this space is a 8,000 sq foot lease space being occupied by the San Antonio Public Library which partnered with YMCA on this project.

A new 60,000 square foot school facility for deaf children.

Interior finishes will utilize exposed masonry walls, cypress wood siding and have exposed ceiling structure. Large amounts of glass and the use of numerous skylights will provide plenty of natural light. The design of the mechanical system and wall/ceiling assemblies were critical for the overall performance of the learning environment for deaf children.
