Pinkard completed phase I and phase II improvements to the City of Aurora's Moorhead Recreation Center, including: Phase I demolition of the existing 4,500 square foot drop-in center; renovating the existing pool, and Phase II: addition of a new 26,000 sf recreation center and a 12,000 sf natatorium.

The recreation center is load bearing masonry and structural steel with a lap pool and leisure pool, full-sized gymnasium with three cross courts and running track, new fitness and cardio space, community teaching kitchen, multi-purpose rooms, public computer space, additional parking and landscape upgrades.

The pool renovation includes pool-shape reconfiguration, addition of a 55-foot water slide, and deck replacement.

The finished center is approximately 38,000 sf.

Demolition of the old space, which has been at capacity for decades, followed owner-contracted abatement.

Pinkard was selected to construct this project following a competitive bid. Pinkard's bid came in more than $1 million under the owner's budget.
