Boys & Girls Club - Teichert Branch

Although the owner was unfamiliar with Tilt-Up, the Teichert Branch of the Boys and Girls Club selected the method for its cost-effectiveness and design flexibility. This project represented the culmination of 10 years of unwavering commitment between the local community members, businesses and other contributors who donated their services and time to bring vitality to this south Sacramento neighborhood.

Equipped to serve more than 10,000 young people living within a two-mile radius of the club, the facility was designed and built specifically for youth programs and activities. The interior space accommodates classrooms and centers for computer education, library learning, science and teens. Further, the facility also houses the Kid’s Café, gymnasium, community multi-purpose room, kitchen, main activities game room and administrative offices. The exterior includes a covered patio that overlooks a soccer field and vegetable garden.

The design scheme included the use of bright, energetic and youthful colors. Acoustical wall panels as well as perforated and insulated decking were used to minimize noise in the open-air environment. Extensive use of glass and glazing ensured lines of sight that resulted in child and employee safety.

Architectural treatments and features included arches at the panel parapets, selected use of reveals for external color breaks, exposed metal roof deck, roof trusses, curved wall panels and a two-story lobby with extensive use of sheetrock and reveals.
