Madison Senior Center
Location: Madison, CT
Client: Town of Madison
Architect: East Wharf Architects (Madison, CT)
Description: Design-Builder and Constructor for the 14,000 sf, wood-framed senior center. Designed to reflect the surrounding residential neighborhood, the facility provides a game room, television/reading room, two exercise rooms, conference rooms, cafeteria with an open room, and five additional activity rooms.
KBE worked closely with the Town of Madison and the architect to bring the project design for the Senior Center and adjacent Ambulance Center into budget. KBE advised the Town of Madison to change the delivery method from Construction Manager as Advisor to Design/Build to save time, money and essentially the projects. Both projects proceeded with KBE as Design/Builder and Constructor. In just two weeks we were able to review the design and estimates and identify significant cost savings to proceed. Additionally, the schedules of the projects were condensed to run concurrently, instead of one after another, to reduce overhead costs.
