Recreation Construction and Design Services

Recreational construction must be approached with a sense of community in mind.

Most of these projects begin with the goal of providing enjoyment, education, and offering group and individual opportunities for the residents of a community. They also serve as a place to gather with a focus on health, wellness and improving one’s quality of life.

 

When completed, it is important these facilities be attractive and welcoming while providing each community with adequate space to support their recreational needs for many years in the future. These facilities often become an essential place in the community often providing special memories for the citizens as places where they learned teamwork, made new friends, and celebrated birthdays and other life events. 

As your design-builder or construction manager, Carl A. Nelson & Company can assist you with the planning of your project with pre-construction services to establish a scope, schedule, and budget that achieve your desires and fulfill the needs of the community. We can also guide you on how to gain public support through education and sharing of information.

Our approach to recreational projects is unique and simple: We know that not only will these projects be a part of your history but will also become a part of ours. 

We also have experience building recreational facilities for clients in the role of general contractor.

We take ownership in our projects

When Carl A. Nelson & Company takes on a project, we see ourselves not just as builders seeking to earn a profit, but partners looking to develop long-term relationships with our clients. That leads to testimonials like this one earned after completion of a $9 million YMCA design-build project in Washington, Iowa:

"I just feel like Carl A. Nelson, in the way they supported this project, ... I felt like that they were very vested in our community and wanted it to be a success. I didn't feel like they were just here building a building. I felt like that they were truly a part of what we were trying to do in our community, and I think that shows as people are coming into the building and the experience that they are having."
— Amy Schulte, executive director, YMCA of Washington County

Similar kudos were received from the owners of a new air-supported athletic dome in Burlington, Iowa, where the design-build project team from Carl A. Nelson & Company proposed the dome as an alternative to the original plan to repurpose a disused precast concrete plant in a difficult-to-access rural area of the community:

"Outstanding counsel to direct the Board away from the original location to the new location. Thank you from the community!" 
— Kevin Carr, Greater Burlington Area Sports Facilities
"Outstanding project. You guys led the project and that is exactly what we needed."
— Jason Hutcheson, former executive director, Greater Burlington Partnership
