YMCA Recreational Facility
Hurricane Gustav also sapped the strength of Houma, Louisiana when it ripped through the YMCA facility, featuring an indoor pool. The pool was surrounded by DensArmor, a highly specialized enclosure material made in Canada. After cleaning away the debris and mitigating damage to the facility, JF&A started replacing the walls. DensArmor had suddenly become scarse, particularly in the wake of storm demands across the Southeastern U.S.
In the end, JF&A got creative, replacing the roof with DensArmor and replacing the walls with tempered glass – easier to obtain under storm recovery conditions and beautiful in appearance. The families of Houma are swimming again, thanks to JF&A.
