Project Description:

  • A.P. Construction is serving as the construction manager for this major renovation and expansion of the New Canaan YMCA which is currently in a fund raising stage and scheduled to start construction in September of 2015.  A.P. Construction completed the initial phase of renovation in 2004 which included a Wellness Center, Child Care, Nursery School, and front desk.
  • Construction management services have included: budgeting, value engineering, safety and logistical planning, and participation in meetings with Town Boards.
  • This is a very tough site to work on due to the need to keep the existing parking for the YMCA users, the limited access to the area of the addition through a residential neighborhood, and the existence of a major gas distribution line along the edge of the property. We have worked closely with the YMCA and the Town of New Canaan on the site logistics plan.
  • Proposed work includes a new addition with two swimming pools, one for training and competition, and a less formal pool for health classes and family oriented events.  The existing pool will be replaced with a family activity center and a child watch area.  The existing gymnasium and the existing locker rooms will be renovated.  The work will be done in two phases with the intention to keep the existing facility open at all times.
