All of the drywall is complete and the painting is just about finished. The rooms and spaces throughout the building have a wide variety of rich earthy tones—from deep reds to warm golds to rich blues.
The flooring has been installed in many of the rooms on the lower level. This includes the bamboo-colored tile in the community room, carpeting in the lobby and carpeting in the game room.
Drop ceilings have been installed in much of the building, sealing up the HVAC system, wiring and plumbing from view.
The six retractable basketball hoops were installed on the gymnasium ceiling and are being tested for functionality.
The cabinetry is being installed in the lower lobby for the reception desk as well as for the library kiosk and coffee bar, where free, hot coffee will be available daily. The classroom has also been fitted with its cabinets and sink area.
Stone finishes and siding are being completed on the outside of the building, and the glulams above the main entrance have been uncovered. Much of the landscaping has also been completed outside, including the trees in the parking lot, sidewalks on Community Drive and Manford Avenue, and preparation of the retention pond for seeding in the spring.
Wayfinding signage and the monument signs have been approved and are being prepped for installation. The wall mural featuring an Estes Park scene has been approved for the Cubz Den.
The golf simulator has arrived. Installation of that equipment will take place after installation of the flooring in its dedicated room in the coming weeks.
The new leisure pool, which is located between the original aquatics center and the new portions of the community center, will include a lazy river and zero-depth entry pool with play features. This area has been mapped out and concrete and shotcrete poured so that you can see the path of the lazy river.
“The building looks amazing,” said Teresa Jackson, Manager of Community Center Operations. “We couldn’t be happier with the progress Adolfson and Peterson Construction has done to make sure this building is ready for our community in February.”
