Silver Bay YMCA of the Adirondacks
Silver Bay, NY
Phinney Design Group has undergone implementing the first major capital improvement at Silver Bay since the late 1970’s. A new 22 room lodge and conference facility designed to operate as an independent, year-round facility within the Silver Bay campus will be built in 2017. The facility will replace the current dining hall with modernized serving and food distribution systems capable of increasing the quality and experience of dining on the campus.
PDG has initiated a series of charrette style information meetings with various Silver Bay constituencies, including operations personnel, management, and the board itself. These meetings have continuously refined and focused the programmatic needs contributing to this new building, and have resulted in the investigation of a single comprehensive facility with both rooms, conference, and general dining capabilities.
