Thomas Construction Group was delighted when the Wilmington Family YMCA Board of Directors selected us to serve as construction manager for the rebuilding of the Market Street facility. The YMCA is such an important pillar of our community, positively impacting thousands of men, women and children of all ages and abilities.
The original building was heavily damaged in a fire in February of 2015. In addition to replacing what was lost, the new facility will significantly expand the YMCA’s community offerings, including spacious exercise areas inside and on the rooftop, a new aquatics center, a kids’ adventure area, space for an enhanced youth program, a commercial grade teaching kitchen, and much more.
The $3 million in fire damages was covered by insurance, and a capital campaign seeks to raise an additional $4 million to $4.5 million to cover the expansion of the facility. Designed by Bowman Murray Hemingway Architects to be open and filled with light, the new design fulfills the vision of providing Wilmington with a YMCA that is truly state of the art.
The capital campaign is in full swing. To help support this vital and vibrant part of a healthy community, make your donation now.
