“We have worked with Teen and his team at CORE Design on several projects, and they are a pleasure to work with. Many times you end up concerned about what someone is going to say during a meeting, and how much you may need to clean up – this is never the case with Teen. His input in client meetings is invaluable, as he delivers great information in a clear, understandable fashion.”

“The YMCA of York and York County has been blessed to serve the greater York region for 160 years! As part of its rich history, the YMCA has engaged and developed relationships with various constituencies from members, benevolent partners, vendors and various other stakeholders.
However, some relationships simply stand out and the YMCA’s relationship and consequent experience with Core Design is one of them.

True relationships are characterized by each party seeking what is best for its partner. This is the case also in client/customer relationships. The YMCA engaged Core Design to assist in moving its vision to fruition of a comprehensive, urban aquatic center at a previously under-capitalized municipal pool site. The challenges were many working with the municipality, volunteer leaders, contributors to the project and even a local church that was sharing the property. In short, the project was complex and one that took some creative and non-traditional approaches.

Since its completion, the YMCA’s Graham Aquatic Center has become a showpiece for the region and is realizing and delivering on its vision of the confluence of neighborhood development, program development and economic development; in the heart of a challenging urban center.
Numerous YMCA’s have visited this Center, as has constituents from other domains, having heard of the Center’s unique design on a complex site yet is a product of creative and careful planning.

While the project is a tremendous success by any metric, that which stands out with Core Design is its leadership/ownership and their personal and professional commitment to their customer – in this case our YMCA – demonstrated by their personal service to our cause. They truly go beyond the customer/client traditional relationship!”
