Collins & Katz Family YMCA

The Collins & Katz Family YMCA is a community-focused nonprofit with recreational programs & services for all ages. Via a joint-use agreement on LAUSD property and under DSA jurisdiction, the new facility is a 100,877 s.f., ground-up, concrete tilt-up and masonry building consisting of a high-end gymnasium, executive offices, exercise rooms, indoor swimming pools, classrooms, saunas, steam rooms, a rooftop track, and a rooftop basketball court. Oltmans’ scope of work also included the fire-life safety and elevator for the adjacent parking structure that was built concurrently. Upon completion, the building not only serves the thousands of members of the YMCA but also provides many years of use for the University High School students. Due to the tight-site constraints on the property, Gonzalez Goodale Architects designed a concrete tilt-up and masonry building combination. The side of the building that meets the property line was converted to masonry while the remaining three sides were concrete tilt-up. To top off the beautiful design, an iconic vaulting copper roof spans the densely stacked facility and can be seen from inside, above the Olympic-sized pool focal point, or from the outside, where it overhangs the glass curtain lobby.
