Crossland Construction Company was awarded the $15.3 million contract for the Excelsior Springs Community Center in Excelsior Springs, Missouri. This two story building has seven different floor elevations, an indoor pool, and an open structure/painting scheme. The exterior consists of brick, cast stone, and metal panels. Visitors will find a water feature at the entrance, in addition to colored accent concrete. A ramp at the center of the structure connects all of the various slab elevations; each designated area is painted a different color from the others. Those areas include the indoor pool, locker rooms, an elevated track, basketball and volleyball courts, a racquetball court, an aerobics area, a fitness area, community rooms, a child watch center, and party rooms.
Mother Nature dealt an extremely wet spring and summer, and a wet, cold winter, resulting in 60 documented weather days. However, true to form, Crossland teams stepped up their game and completed the project on budget, just three weeks past the original completion date. Our crews self-performed earthwork, concrete, and steel work.
