Wissahickon Valley Boys and Girls Club

New Facility for the Boys and Girls Club

Isett is assisting the Wissahickon Valley Boys and Girls Club with numerous services related to the development of a new 27,000-square-foot facility and associated site improvements. The existing single-story, modular building formerly on the site was undersized for its current and proposed services. The previous building was also located in a floodplain, which presented significant challenges in the past.

Isett provided owner’s representation and construction management services, along with engineering design and field services for the new building, which will enhance the group’s ability to benefit additional children in the local area.

The new building will support classroom programs for grades 1 through 5 as well as middle school students, surrounding a large activity area on each floor to offer recreational activities and technology centers. Other highlights include a 5,000-square-foot gymnasium, outdoor play areas, and on-site pedestrian pathways with lighting and stormwater management.
