An Award-Winning Facility for the Community
The Woodson Park Academy & YMCA project included a new 115,000 SF K-8 school, a 23,000 SF YMCA, and a 2,500 SF Community Wellness Clinic and Early Learning Center to benefit a historically under-served community in West Atlanta. After completion, the project received a First Place Build Georgia Award and a CMAA-SE Project Achievement Award.
Executing Our Clients’ Visions
The project was a unique, community-revolutionizing project financed and built in partnership between Atlanta Public Schools, the Grove Park Foundation, the YMCA of Metro Atlanta, and KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools. Carroll Daniel Construction took on the task of building three facilities for four separate clients on an urban site patched together from ten properties, all under a single contract.
Engaging and Inspiring the Local Community
The many challenges included extreme inclement weather, treacherous unknowns underground, a design that was over budget, and numerous unforeseen delays and hurdles. Through extensive preconstruction effort, creative project sequencing, and the hard work of our project team, Woodson Park is a glowing success for the Grove Park community. It was delivered on time, under budget, and with involvement and partnership with the local community.
