Greenwich, CT A.P. Construction Company (APC) has broken ground on the new construction and renovation project for the Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich to expand and enhance its facility.
Governor Lamont and other officials were in attendance for the groundbreaking ceremony held on October 23rd. The clubhouse was built in the 1930s and this is the club’s first major renovation project in nearly 20 years.
The $22 million, 88,000 s/f renovation and expansion includes a new gymnasium, upgraded teen center, additional instructional space and an outdoor amphitheater; all built over the club’s existing outdoor parking lot. Additional upgrades to the club’s infrastructure will be made including plumbing, electrical, HVAC and information technology systems. The facility will perform, as a whole, in a more sustainable and efficient manner, utilizing an electric system for heating and cooling. The club also plans to add a new secure vestibule to ensure that members continue to be safe and comfortable during their time at the clubhouse.
The architect is KG+D Architects based in Mount Kisco, NY. Construction is slated for completion by early spring 2025.
The Ashforth Company, APC’s parent company, has been a long-standing supporter of Boys & Girls Clubs in both Greenwich and Stamford as well as numerous nonprofit organizations in the Greenwich and Fairfield County area.
Boys & Girls Club of Greenwich is a nonprofit youth facility that provides a safe and supportive environment where children ages 6-18 can learn and grow.
