J.M. Wilkerson Construction Co., Inc. was the General Contractor for the Brook Run Skate Park project located in Dunwoody, GA.
The 27,000 sq. ft skate facility centered around a new 2,500 sq ft. building with restrooms, concessions, covered viewing and space for tournament organizers. The entire site, down to the countertops in the vending area, is made from concrete. Shotcrete and concrete were used together on vertical and horizontal planes, which is a relatively new design/application feature. Brook Run Skate Park was a very detail oriented project, similar to building a 3 acre glass surface. All sides and banks that were shotcreted were templated every linear foot. The fine grading was as perfect as the final concrete itself, with all concrete and joints being perfectly smooth. The clubhouse is fully skateable, with 10 overhead doors, which remain open to allow skaters access to the restrooms and snack bar areas.
