The Nantucket Boys & Girls Club was founded in 1945 with less than 230 members. Today, there are over 700 members with 300 attending daily. In order for the Club to continue supporting the community, a significant expansion and renovation was required.
Size isn’t an impediment to getting a great building for your campus, but hiring an architect who doesn’t understand the specific needs of a small institution can be a real impediment to a project’s success. As Stanmar’s Oliver Snider explains in a recent feature story in Private University Products & News, small institutions’ challenges only begin with the need for cost certainty.
As an Owner, understanding the risks during various stages of construction plays a large role in knowing when to be concerned and when to relax and let your contractor handle a problem. Ralph Agostinelli, Stanmar’s senior project manager, broke down a fitness center construction timeline in the November’s issue of Private University Product and News to help illuminate what to look for.
The Nantucket Boys and Girls Club, hired Stanmar, Inc. to design and construct their new facility. Since 1945, the Nantucket Boys & Girls Club has been helping Nantucket’s youth grow and succeed. The Club is a vital resource for the Nantucket community, providing parents with a safe, healthy and fun place for their children. Throughout the past twenty years, the Club has expanded from 230 members to 669 members. In order for the Club to continue to be a part of children’s lives, a significant change was needed.
Three magazines recently recently recognized Tufts University’s Steve Tisch Sports and Fitness Center in their respective Facility Showcases. Located in Medford, Massachusetts, we designed and constructed the Sports and Fitness Center, opening last fall on time and under budget.
We are proud to see our recent project across multiple publications!
