Youth Center Remodel

San Carlos, California

The City of San Carlos commissioned Interactive Resources to upgrade its existing twenty-year-old Youth Center to better reflect current programs and services. The Youth Center serves more than one hundred middle-schoolers, Monday through Friday, and is home to a wide variety of after-school activities including music programs, sports, gymnastics, summer camp, special events and facility rentals.

Interactive Resources provided architectural design and engineering services for the Youth Center improvements. The project began with a structural evaluation of the current condition of the gymnasium, as well as programming and space planning, and evolved into a complete remodel that included schematic design, construction documents, bidding and construction administration services.

New modifications were designed for the lobby, gymnasium, craft room, tv room, kitchen, restrooms and roof. These modifications included: lobby upgrades with new front counter and architectural finishes, gymnasium bleacher replacement, new gymnasium floor, roof upgrades, classroom kitchen replacement, interior and exterior disabled access upgrades, gym clerestory window replacement, and exterior cladding improvements.
