Eleven awards were presented by the Roanoke Valley Preservation Foundation in November. The awards are presented annually and honorees are nominated and voted on by a foundation committee. The organization recognizes significant examples of preservation through restoration or adaptive reuse of old structures, environmental and educational projects, and lifetime achievement. “The Locker Room Lofts” in Roanoke was presented with an award for the adaptive reuse of the former Central YMCA into a 56-unit apartment building with extended athletic features. Balzer and Associates, Inc. provided Architectural Design, Structural Engineering and Mechanical/Electrical Engineering (via consultants) for the entire project, from initial conceptual design to construction completion. The project included adaptive re-use while retaining the “historic” features of the doors, corridors/circulation, athletic features, entrances to the building, and all of the exterior materials.
