Representatives for Family Violence Prevention Services – The Battered Women and Children’s Shelter, contacted us late November 2018. At that time, they were in the early stages of construction of a new gymnasium. Therefore, they were in need of advice and pricing for gym flooring and other gym components.
Steve J. Markey, managing partner at Whitestone Wealth Management, was helping on the project. His background included serving on the boards of the San Antonio Area Foundation, San Antonio Sports Foundation, Make a Wish Foundation, and other charities. This experience gave Steve unique insights to help steer the project.
Craig Massouh, with CGM and Associates located in New Braunfels, Texas was the project architect. Craig has provided design and project management services on a variety of projects ranging from new construction to rehabilitation and repurposing of older properties. His experience spans over 40 years.
Sullivan Contracting Services located in Seguin, Texas was the general contractor. Sullivan Contracting Services is owned by Trey and Kimberly Pounds. Austin Worthy was the project manager for the Family Violence Prevention Services gymnasium project.
The gymnasium was laid out with interior wall to wall measurements of roughly 74’ x 58’. We were sent a preliminary design which included a volleyball court, primary basketball goals at each end, and two additional basketball goals along each side of the court. All of the goals were to be ceiling mounted. We recommended that the side court goals be eliminated. And, rather than suspending the main goals to the ceiling, we recommended wall mounted units. The elimination of the extra side goals and going with wall mount units for the two remaining goals would save $25,000 to $30,000.
Sport Court® high gloss Maple Select flooring was chosen for the project. Family Violence Prevention Services chose this floor for it’s unique safety features, lower cost, longer lifespan, and lower life cycle costs.
The basketball goals, Sport Court® gym flooring, and the volleyball system were installed in October 2019. This was almost a full year after we first looked at the project. Wall pads were then added the following month.
