Apollo Recreation Center
Henry Bros. renovated the park district’s 18,000 S.F. community center and gymnasium, while also completing a new 22,000 S.F. addition to house an aerobic studio, fitness center, and additional gymnasium.
The new concrete block and brick structure was made to blend with the existing precast building. This addition and facade combined the old with the new transforming the entire community center into a building that gives the appearance of having been newly constructed.
The unified look was achieved by removing the existing windows and replacing them with new, green translucent panels to complement the luminous green light that towers above the grand lobby.
Additionally, an Exterior Finish Insulation System (EFIS) helped create a look of cohesiveness throughout the entire structure’s facade.
Henry Bros. Co. completed an Aquatic Park for the Alsip Park District in 1989.
