Aiken Family YMCA

In creating the nation’s first YMCA in conjunction with a local church and hospital system, The Family Y of Greater Augusta turned to the McMillan Pazdan Smith for their expertise in YMCA facilities and the Firm’s unique ability to balance multiple users and interests.

McMillan Pazdan Smith’s 40,000 SF design is a state-of-the-art facility that features indoor and outdoor swimming pools, a water park, fitness areas, childcare facilities and youth sports fields on a 20-acre site near a significant new residential and commercial development.

The design also supports community needs though the Y’s creative partnerships and houses assessment and rehabilitation services of a local hospital and flexible multi-use spaces that allow all three organizations to share functions within the facility. The design team supported a USDA funding process and provided oversight throughout construction.
