Sterling Community Center

The Sterling Community Center project is a three-phase LEED Silver project which included the renovation of 120 Enterprise St., demolition of 150 Enterprise St, and expansion of the parking lot with utility tie ins. 120 Enterprise is a 1970’s masonry, split-level, single-story 18,000 SF building that was raised to one contiguous level in Phase 1. The existing gymnasium was expanded on two sides and received a new, higher roof structure. The renovated building includes a public lobby, teen recreation area, gym, fitness room, computer room, kitchen, classrooms, administrative space, and art room. The work involved storefront and glazing, exterior brick and metal panel, membrane roofing, folding partitions, vertical folding overhead door, geothermal wells, mechanical, electrical, and plumbing, millwork, low voltage, audiovisual, fencing and other typical materials of new single-story construction.

Phase 2 and 3 included the mechanical rooftop unit and lighting salvage operations and subsequent demolition of the 150 Enterprise Street building, completion of stormwater structures, and construction of the new parking lot and vehicular entrance to the site from Enterprise Street.

On this project rock has been encountered all over the site, in some areas as low as 12” below grade in locations where we needed to install utility lines, a storm water management system and a 16’ deep retaining wall.
