THE HEIGHTS Community Center

Richmond Heights, MO


In the fall of 2016, the project team of CannonDesign, Civil Design, Inc., DTLS, and Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained by the City of Richmond Heights to assist with assessing current needs within the city, undertake a cursory building analysis of The HEIGHTS Community Center and Memorial Library, and explore planning options to best accommodate the identified needs. The study included a physical and programmatic assessment of the existing facility, analysis of operational efficiencies, and potential for enhanced programmatic opportunities. Through a public input process, the team interviewed administration, staff, and project stakeholders, held a public forum, implemented a community survey, and developed an expanded space program, and prioritized the needs identified. Multiple planning concepts were evaluated in determining the most viable approach for expanding and renovating the community center, library, and site to accommodate the identified needs of the community.

Counsilman-Hunsaker conducted a physical assessment of the natatorium, indoor pool, and pool systems and found numerous deficiencies with pump-filter equipment, pool circulation, finishes, and mechanical systems. Programmatically, the current pool configuration created many challenges to providing diverse fitness and recreational activities.

Pleased with the results of the study, THE HEIGHTS facility’s renovations were completed in March 2020 which included a complete remodel of the aquatic center with upgraded locker rooms, an expansion of the fitness center, three dedicated group x fitness rooms, and enclosed balconies in the lobby on both the fitness and library sides.
