The last phase for the Papillion Community Center finally came to an end. For the past year, the Field House has been in operation, and the community of Papillion anxiously awaited the Community Center’s grand opening. Jared Gable, General Foreman, along with Aaron Strong, were supported with a strong field team. Their field team did a phenomenal job the last few weeks keeping up with the schedule and working alongside Sampson Construction to complete the project.
The community of Papillion is already benefiting from the new facility. The soccer field’s sports lighting is now up and in use. The soccer fields are already being used and the first soccer game took place at the beginning of November. The outdoor soccer fields have also been home to the facility’s first “Quidditch” game. Whether it be soccer, baseball, softball, or Quidditch, there will be many games in the near future that will be played at either the Papillion Community Center, Field House, or surrounding fields.
The 117,000 sq. ft. Community Center building is at its final stage, and with colder weather around the corner, the Community Center will be the perfect spot to enjoy the indoor pool, lazy river, and water slide. Other great attractions included in the Community Center are the 6 ,300 sq. ft. fitness center, basketball courts, volleyball courts, and the elevated walking/jogging track, to name just a few.
The Omaha office is proud of the work that its field team performed. The professionalism of the team was consistently on display while working long hours throughout the hot summer. The emphasis the team placed on safety is recognized and appreciated by everyone who participated in this challenging work environment. Pictures of the project, as well as some members of the group, are shown below.
