The Challenge Center is a 20,000 SF multi-level interactive learning facility that includes experiential learning rooms, a competition arena, performance platforms, and agility training and obstacle courses. It also has a unique, space station theme to enhance each participant’s journey.
The Challenge Center was one component of a very large community center facility, so RGI needed to provide a unique space that would still incorporate into the existing building. The Challenge Center was also a very untraditional project with many moving parts. The RGI team worked closely with the overall project team to create a complex and detailed museum quality design with intricate engineering features.
RGI met with the owner and developed the necessary criteria to define quality design and the functionality/constructability for such a unique project. Clear communication with the owner, as well as the other teams working on the larger project, proved key to providing the quality that the owner expected.
RGI provided documents for each stage of the project using the state-of-the-art BIM that described the quality control standards and the necessary process for the contractor.
The Challenge Center is a high quality interactive area that is truly an amenity to this region. It provides great outreach to the community and the client was very pleased.
As we continue to navigate through the challenges posed by COVID-19, we’d like to share an update on how Renaissance Group is responding.
In an effort to reduce risk and prioritize well-being, we are encouraging our team members to work remotely, and moving all in-person meetings to online conference calls. We have done this with more than half our staff for a week thus far. We are fortunate that our communications and work solutions allow for remote access without any concerns. Our work on your projects will not stop. Even working remotely, we will be able to continue to meet deadlines and provide you with the best service possible. We will also continue to be accessible through email, phone and text, and our office phones will be forwarded to our cell phones.
In transparency, please be aware that there may be delays beyond our control in dealing with governmental approvals and things of that nature. We will be in communication with you immediately if we learn your project will be affected. We continue to monitor communications from both local and federal health officials and we take every warning and direction seriously. For more information about the virus, please visit www.cdc.gov.
We are in this together, and we are here to help navigate these unprecedented times.
