YMCA of Pawtucket - MacColl Field, Lincoln, RI

Caputo and Wick Ltd. has maintained a long-standing relationship with the YMCA of Pawtucket and has provided professional assistance on a number of projects over the past 20 years.  Working with the Client’s architect (ai designs, ltd.), we most-recently provided site design, structural engineering, environmental permitting, and construction oversight for significant Master Plan improvements at MacColl Field.  The primary project component was the design and construction of a new 52,000 square-foot facility containing an indoor swimming and diving pool, gymnasium, wellness facilities, and administrative offices.  Assistance with building design included structural loadings calculations and structural detailing, particularly for the lengthy roof span over the swimming pool.  Site design features included analysis of vehicle circulation patterns and conflict avoidance with bus drop-offs, design of a reconfigured and expanded parking lot, new entry driveway, sanitary sewage pump station, installation of site utilities and integration between existing buildings, athletic field modification, stormwater management features (in strict compliance with the RI Stormwater Design and Installation Standards Manual), and installation of a sewer line under a river and fringe wetlands (requiring temporary flow diversion, dewatering provisions, and restorative channel and bank design).  Other services included boundary and topographic survey, wetland delineation, coordination with the Town and RIDOT, preparation of a Physical Alteration Permit, wetlands permitting through RIDEM with coordinated US Army Corps of Engineers review, and construction administration. Construction phasing was required as a key facet of the project schedule to maintain an unhindered summer camp program.  The aerial images below reflect the campus prior to the implementation of Master Plan improvements (left) and following construction (right).  The ground-level images illustrate the site layout and grading design as constructed.
