New England Construction Begins Construction at Bayside YMCA’s New Aquatic Center

BARRINGTON, RI (August 30, 2012) – As members and friends of the Bayside YMCA in Barrington, RI said farewell to the existing pool in early August with a final plunge, New England Construction was preparing for the renovations to the existing facility and construction of the new Aquatics Center.

New England Construction is serving as Construction Manager for the renovation to the existing facility for the Greater Providence YMCA. The project, designed by Vision 3 Architects of Providence, RI encompasses renovation to more than 36,000 sf of space and the addition of a new 24,430 sf Aquatics Center with a six-lane in-ground pool, as well as a shallow swimming pool for families. A new member-friendly reception and front desk area, all new locker rooms and significant improvements to the gym, fitness and wellness center are also planned. To meet increasing demand for services, several enhancements to ensure handicap accessibility, including the addition of a new elevator, will be executed.

“New England Construction is excited to be part of this project for the YMCA of Greater Providence and the local families who frequent the Bayside location. We will continue to support this project with careful planning, phased execution and consistent communications. A commitment to the safety of the membership will be paramount as construction will be on-going while the facility is operational,” notes John Pignataro, President and COO of New England Construction.

During construction, Bayside Aquatic staff will be offering comparable programs at various other branches. Members can swim at other YMCA branches, including the East Side of Providence, Newman Y in Seekonk, MA and Cranston, RI. Members are encouraged to visit the Bayside YMCA website “Construction Zone” page, as well as the Bayside YMCA Facebook Fan Page for updates regarding the project and member services.
