Holland Completes Fairview Heights Recreation Complex

By on April 11, 2019

From Illinois Business Journal:  Work is completed on the new $17 million Fairview Heights Recreational Complex dubbed The REC located at 10025 Bunkum Road. The 30-acre site is the former location of Our Lady of Assumption Church at Bunkum Road and Interstate 64 on the city’s west side. Opening day is May 6.

The city’s Parks and Recreation Department has started moving into the building.

Holland Construction Services was nominated for a Building St. Louis award sponsored by the St. Louis Business Journal for its work on the project.

The project was a team effort between Holland Construction Services in Swansea, EWR Architects (now Farnsworth Group) in Fairview Heights, the city’s Parks and Recreation Department and the city of Fairview Heights.

“It has been a great collaboration from the beginning,” said Holland Project Manager Ryan Savage. “It took everyone working together for this to be a successful project.”

Construction began in October 2017 and there were some slight delays because of the rainy weather during the winter. “It was a rough start, but we overcame it,” said Savage. “The group of contractors on this project really stepped up to the plate. They all worked as if they were hand-selected and the end product shows. It was a great team.”

Holland Construction Services has a long history of building recreational complexes. The company’s most recent project was the Bridgeton Recreation Center in Bridgeton, Mo.
