Monroe County Family Wellness Center

J&S Construction completed Phase II of the Monroe County Family Wellness Center, located in Tompkinsville, Ky. The 17,751 square-foot building includes a six-lane swimming pool, a cardio-fitness area and support facilities and is the second building of a multi-phase project.

After an intense selection process, the unanimous decision was made by the Monroe Fiscal Court following presentations by three general contractors for the design-build project. J&S Constructions’ proposal was chosen over two local companies out of the Glasgow area.

Alongside building designer Adkisson and Associates, J&S Construction was asked to tie an existing building with the new structure to allow the small staff to watch both buildings. Another requirement from the wellness center was the need to lower the utility/operating costs for both the new and existing buildings. J&S Construction, along with team member CHC Mechanical, used the team’s extensive knowledge in energy-efficient construction, adding a high efficiency HVAC System, a cool roof and other energy-efficient concepts. As a result of these additions, J&S was able to lower the operating expenses of both buildings.

The Monroe County Family Wellness Center’s board worked for many years to attain grants to fund this project. The grant’s guidelines included a specific cost for the project as well as a specific completion date. If the project did not fall within these restrictions, the funding could have been lost. J&S was able to provide a guaranteed schedule and cost and completed the project with no contractor requested change orders.
