Westport Weston Family YMCA

Westport Weston Family YMCA

Since the Westport Weston Family YMCA’s successful opening of the Bedford Family Center, the Family YMCA engaged Zubatkin to lead a strategic master plan to further develop its campus identity, improve circulation and access, and centralize program offerings. Priorities centered on improvements to the YMCA’s campus, including its summer camp, gymnastics and wellness programs.

The campus master plan was realized through the implementation of several major projects:

  • A 22,000 SF addition to the Bedford Family Center providing spaces for gymnastics, classrooms, and expanded wellness areas. The expansion also allowed the YMCA to grow offerings for high-demand programs, such as group exercise classes, indoor cycling, youth programs, dance, and support after-school activities.
  • Improvements to the campus included a new outdoor lap and teaching pool, pool house, splash pad, activity pavilions, giant slides, archery range, climbing wall, and multi-sports field. The scope also included the renovation of Becks Lodge into a youth/teen center, renovation of the outdoor amphitheater, and upgrades to the playground. Extensive sitework and landscape improvements enhanced circulation and accessibility throughout the campus including a fitness trail loop and recreational water access.

The projects were carefully phased to allow the YMCA to maintain ongoing operations during construction and were successfully delivered on schedule and within budget through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Archdiocese of New York

Archdiocese of New York

The Archdiocese of New York (ADNY) covers over 300 Roman Catholic parishes across the counties of New York, the Bronx, Richmond, Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, Rockland, Sullivan, Ulster and Westchester.  Their properties range from parish and rectory facilities to schools, community centers and other multi-use institutional buildings.

Zubatkin’s relationship with ADNY dates back to 2007 when the firm was engaged to manage the interior and exterior restoration of St. Patrick’s Cathedral.  Seeing the value that was added in developing a more efficient way to deliver the Cathedral project, ADNY asked Zubatkin to evaluate their overall approach to their capital improvement projects and general facilities maintenance needs.  As a result of the findings of this study, the Zubatkin team has been engaged to oversee all of ADNY’s major capital projects for its real estate portfolio.
