YMCA Recreational Facility

Houma, Louisiana

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.
