City of Elk River
Elk River YMCA
Elk River, Minn.
Following a long-term vision and planning concept BWBR helped the Elk River YMCA develop for the organization, the team coordinated a conceptual study exploring site and floor planning opportunities and conceptual exterior imagery.
Public literature and general marketing efforts helped develop project understanding and support, and BWBR provided prefundraising design, with programming and space needs analysis, to help the YMCA’s efforts.
BWBR also worked with the city to obtain legacy landfill grant rebates, saving Elk River more than $1 million through recycling rebates.
