The York Jewish Community Center (JCC) is a thriving non-profit community center that provides a fitness center, relaxation center, child care as well as enrichment classes and programs to York County. The JCC engaged SDC when they needed additional capacity to continue to serve the needs of York County. SDC consulted closely with the JCC to design and permit two building additions including a 5,900 SF fitness center, a 10,800 SF child care center, 67 new parking spaces, and associated improvements.

Project challenges included the need to not only expand the existing stormwater management basins, but also to design additional basins to accommodate stormwater from the increased impervious area from the JCC nearly doubling the size of their existing facility.

As the site is located in two different municipalities, another project challenge included coordinating with both municipalities to ensure our design met the standards of both sets of ordinances. The JCC’s expanded facility helps the JCC continue their mission to provide York County with an inclusive community center.
