Mar Lan Construction was selected as Construction Manager at Risk to build the new 22,500 square foot facility.
The Goppert Building built for the Ottawa Recreation Center provides regulation and youth-sized basketball courts, a large multi-purpose room that is used as an exercise room, elevated walking/running track, a fitness area, and all of the required amenities to make the Center a perfect facility for both youth and seniors alike. To make the facility more adaptable for community events, the building includes a warming kitchen and serving window so that large events can be scheduled in the activity area.
The exterior of the structure is a unique blend of masonry, metal and polycarbonate glazing which presents an open and inviting look to the facility. The translucent panels give a warm glow during evening hours while the clear glass allows views of the interior activity.
