Broomfield Community Center Reconstruction Project
News & Updates.....
Adolfson & Peterson Construction (AP) was awarded the Construction Manager/General Contractor (CM/GC) agreement by Council on January 23, 2018, authorizing the contractor to begin the preconstruction services to include constructability reviews and cost estimating to keep the project within budget.
Davis has completed the schematic design phase and AP is estimating the design drawings and scope narratives. The amendment process to the Site Development Plan (SDP) has started with the SDP Concept Review scheduled for the March 27th Council Meeting. The start date for first phase of construction is anticipated to be mid-August of 2018.

SCHEDULESchematic Design, Design Development, and Construction Documents are anticipated to be completed by January 2018, April 2018, and November 2018, respectively. It is anticipated that the delivery method for construction will be conducted in a “Fast Track” method which allows construction documents to be released in phases so that construction can start earlier. Following Council consideration of a construction agreement, the proposed construction phases would include Phase 1) Demolition/Sitework/Utilities, Phase 2) Foundations/Superstructure, Phase 3) Balance of the Building, and Phase 4) Demolition of Senior Center/Balance of Sitework. Under this delivery method, it is anticipated that construction would start with Phase 1 (closure of the recreational wing) as early as June 2018, complete the new facility by March 2020. Remaining balance of the sitework by May 2020.
The Broomfield Community Center (BCC) was constructed in 1974. A substantial renovation and addition of the Senior Center was completed in 1990. The BCC is at a point where substantial renovations are necessary. Many individual smaller projects have been requested over recent years due to the age of the facility. In addition, a substantial renovation and expansion of the BCC has been slated for the long range major building need for 2026. It became evident that the individual smaller projects needed to be combined and coordinated with an overall facility master plan so the improvements would integrate into the future plans and not become “throw away.” In addition, the improvements would have to maintain the operations and programs offered at the facility.
Davis Partnership Architects (Davis) was selected to develop a Master Plan for the facility that would allow for a phased approach to meet the operational needs of the facility with a Phase 1 project that would address the most urgent needs of the facility. The Phase 1 and associated Master Plan conceptual design was approved by Council at the July 21, 2015, Study Session. Subsequently, Davis was awarded a design agreement for the Phase 1 improvements at the August 25, 2015, Council meeting. The Phase 1 improvements included a partial demolition of the north side of the facility, a two story addition to include new locker rooms on the first floor, group fitness on the second floor, replacement of the elevator, and improving egress and storage for the facility. At the time of the design award, the funding for Phase 1, including design services, totaled $3,653,800.
During the design process and building code analysis, it was determined that the project will need to add a fire sprinkler and fire alarm system to the north half (recreational wing) of the building to meet current building code requirements; include relocation of the elevator to the new addition to avoid structural complications with the existing roof structures and the addition of a ramp from the main level to the locker/pool level to provide access to the elevator. The necessary design adjustments resulted in an updated overall project estimate of $4,153,956.
The Phase 1 project was bid and the low bidder was within the revised budget estimate. However, due to new and potentially costly findings regarding deficiencies with the existing pool, the direction has been to re-evaluate the cost- effectiveness and feasibility of a new larger facility replacement funded by debt financing.
2-Story Conceptual Design
The Senior Services wing of the building will remain open during construction of the new facility.
Council selected the option to replace the facility with a new 87,500 square foot facility in a phased approach which requires the demolition of the recreation wing of the facility while keeping the Senior Services wing of the building operational during construction of the new facility.
Once the new facility is complete, Senior Services will move into the new facility.

In August 2017, Council adopted Ordinance No. 2053 authorizing the issuance of Sales and Use Tax Revenue Bonds for the purpose of providing funds for the Broomfield Community Center Redevelopment Project (and also the Dillon Road/West 144th Avenue project).
On July 11, Council approved a consultant design award to Davis Partnership PC. In addition, Ballard King & Associates LTD, has been awarded an agreement by the City Manager for consulting services to facilitate the public process and development of features and programming to be included in the new facility design. Design investigation, research, and conceptual design is underway, and the public process is expected to start in late August.
The conceptual design involves the demolition of the north half of the facility to allow space on the site for a new facility to be constructed. This would allow the senior services wing of the building to remain open during the construction of a new 2 story Community Center; however, it would require that some programs move to the Paul Derda Recreation Center while others would be discontinued for approximately 18 to 24 months while the new facility is being constructed.
