Ryan Construction served as the Construction Manager – General Contractor on the MacColl Field YMCA, a new year-round 2-story YMCA facility. Ryan was selected as their CM early in the design phase in the project and worked through every detail delivering a successful project within budget and schedule.
The new facility includes a 25 yard Family Pool, Fitness Center, Locker Rooms, Showers, a High School-Sized Gymnasium for Basketball and Other Sports, a Youth After-School Program Space and Teen Center, and a Pre-School Play Center and Climbing Wall. The YMCA also converted two existing year-round buildings on the grounds expanding its capacity for Pre-School Early Learning and Teen Programming.
Ryan Construction Inc. was selected to manage the construction of this new urban commercial office building in the heart of Davis Square, Somerville. In part, for our experience, managing complex construction in limited access locations. As you can see from the completed project photo above, the building is situated on three busy streets – Dover St., Elm St., and Day St – with zero setbacks, and the rear of the building directly on the lot line.
The work involved the demolition of a one and a half steel-framed building while salvaging the basement walls that were internally braced in advance of demolition. While excavating for the new interior footings, tainted soil was found. The building has a structural steel frame with a concrete slab on metal deck floors. It has a brick exterior, a three-story curtainwall system fronting Elm St., fixed windows, and a four-stop elevator.
The site improvements included protecting and preserving two large trees on Elm St and replacing the sidewalks on three sides of the building.
