Tree Preservation

In the spirit of maintaining the historic tree canopy of Old Southwest Reno, the building site of the Moana Springs Aquatics & Fitness Center project was intentionally selected to minimize removal of these beautiful trees.

Project Schedule

The overall project schedule is expected to be 19 months. The CORE team and selected Trade Partners started in August 2022 site clearing, modification to the existing adjacent soccer fields, and underground utilities & foundation work prior to the winter months of 2022-2023. Continuing through winter and into the spring/summer of 2023, the project team will progress  through structure, MEP systems, and enclosure. Interior finishes and exterior site improvements are anticipated to be complete Summer 2024.
