DISASTER

When a tornado swept through the community of Creston, Iowa, in 2012, it damaged dozens of homes, a hospital, a community college and the Southern Prairie YMCA. As the entire community struggled to piece their lives back together, GC3 stepped in to provide comfort through the chaos.

RECOVERY

Because the YMCA was a tenant in a building owned by the city, our team worked with the city and their insurance provider through every step of the cleanup and restoration process, including contents mitigation and reconstruction. After the initial rebuild, the YMCA asked GC3 to complete a planned building renovation that included locker room updates and the addition of two family restrooms and changing rooms.

RESULT

GC3 worked with the YMCA and local subcontractors to complete the $200,000 renovation in just 90 days. Now, Southern Prairie is able to serve even more members of the community. After all, every cloud has  a silver lining.

“ We not only got our project done under the original timelines, but under budget as well. Our project managers offered good advice about how we could save costs.”

— Jacki Steffers, Executive Director, Southern Prairie YMCA
