Griffin Structures, Inc. provided construction management services for the new 26,500-square-foot Community Center that features multi-purpose rooms, activity rooms, fitness rooms, a catering kitchen, staff offices, and storage as well as a new surface parking lot. The new community center is located at the site of existing abandoned police station. Prior to start of construction, the main level of police station and non-structural components of existing basement were demolished, leaving existing 10,636-square-foot basement to be remodeled into lower level of community center. A new 15,912-square-foot wood-framed and stucco main level was built on top of the existing slab and foundations. Additionally, an existing 4,358-square-foot carport was modified to serve as an equipment storage area for park maintenance staff.
The $6 million construction cost was assembled though Redevelopment funds of $5 million and $1 million from Parks and Recreation fees paid by developers.
