Building

on a legacy.

When the DuPont Country Club embarked on a journey to add value to their memberships with new offerings, they needed to find a construction manager that could bring their new state-of-the-art fitness center and pool to life. Designed and constructed to exceed member expectations and serve the community, EDiS Company worked to ensure this project would reflect the quality and 100-year legacy DuPont Country Club is known for.

 

Building

to match the history.

The original designs for the fitness center called for materials that would match the historic building adjacent to it. Kept in impeccable condition, the neighboring building had been constructed with costly materials. The initial design for the new fitness center was over budget as a result of trying to exactly match the materials. To solve the dilemma, EDiS studied multiple cost-saving scenarios until they found one that achieved the same look with reduced cost.

Every system, finish, and use of space was analyzed and economized so that the owner had the lowest price solution while still allowing for quality materials and craftsmanship. For example, EDiS suggested the client use a Reflectit EIFS system instead of a full-metal paneling system because it was less expensive and nearly identical in aesthetic. The same goes for the athletic center’s glass system, choosing the storefront system instead of a curtain wall because it was similar in design but kept costs in line. Collaborating with the equipment designer helped EDiS find the right indoor flooring for the fitness center. The pool decking was also switched to a brushed concrete, with other pool materials like the gutter system being stainless steel.

Building

within budget constraints.

"When the original plans came in over budget, EDiS worked with ownership and the architects to create a facility that encompassed our programming needs, while achieving our vision and budgetary constraints."

Building

with a pre-engineered building.

EDiS Building Systems (EBS) Solutions suggested a Butler Manufacturing pre-engineered metal building be used for the fitness center. Butler solutions are custom engineered to specific dimensions, structural criteria, and materials in accordance with local building codes. Butler’s system is designed to assemble quickly, enabling it to be built up to 30% faster than is possible with conventional construction methods or wood frame buildings. By manufacturing building roof and wall systems off-site and coordinating and assembling on-site, the team was able to secure a quicker ground-up construction time frame. Additionally, because Butler Systems are pre-engineered, EDiS was able to work through constructability issues before they occurred in the actual field. With time-consuming steps eliminated, the project started sooner and was finished within the client’s requested completion date.
