Prairie Forge Group constructed this new community/recreation center for the Geneva Park District on a former farm site. The design delineates a building that expresses a barn theme and complements the rural tradition of the location. The pre-engineered metal building facility features two basketball courts, two volleyball courts, a running track, a fitness center, locker rooms, dance/aerobics space and multi-purpose rooms. Despite challenging winter conditions during this building’s steel erection, PFG was able to complete the project in time for the park district’s scheduled activities.
