The city of Watford City was experiencing extensive growth and an influx of residents creating a need for a community facility that could provide a variety of recreational opportunities. The Ackerman-Estvold team worked with local project stakeholders to develop a facility that was customized for the citizens of Watford City.
The Connie Wold Wellness Center is a precast concrete building with a steel truss system roof. The precast panels are made of colored concrete with brick veneer accents. The lobby combines a check-in desk with a coffee and juice bar. Amy’s Toy Room offers a kid friendly play space next to the lobby and main training area.
The main training area, weight area, spinning classroom, aerobics class room and locker rooms are located on the main floor. A physical therapy suite is located near the front entrance and includes 3 offices, 3 therapy booths, a massage therapy room and a set of 2 Swimex hydrotherapy pools.
The upper level walking track is open and overlooks the main training area below and then curves around an upper training area. Several offices and small conference rooms are located near the track perimeter. An elevator provides access to the walking track for members who can’t use the stairs. The building provides services for all levels of physical ability, from physical rehab services to advanced cardio-fitness classes.
