Pinkard Construction Celebrates Topping Out at Commerce City’s New Rec Center
Commerce City, CO – Construction Manager Pinkard Construction and Commerce City celebrated the topping off of the new recreation center at Second Creek on June 29, raising the final piece of steel in the community wing. This ceremony served as a symbol for this city’s dedication to unify its residents and fulfill its promise of finishing the voter-approved capital improvement program.
Since starting construction last year, more than 250 football fields of dirt have been moved, there have been more than 19 miles of conduit installed, and nearly 13 million pounds of concrete have been poured. More than 315 individuals are employed through the project with many more in the future.
The 108,000-square-foot new facility will feature an indoor pool, gymnasium with walking/jogging track, weights/fitness area, dance/aerobics studio, site infrastructure and much more. Located at E. 112th Avenue and Potomac Street, the new recreation center building will be sited toward Highway 2 and oriented with a south-facing entrance. The total project budget is $45.2 million for the building and $15.7 million for site and road infrastructure. View more information www.c3gov.com/secondcreek. The new recreation center is scheduled to be complete next year.
