About Project

On a recent trip to Boys and Girls Club of Truckee Meadows (BGCTM) it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. That was until the yellow school bus full of ebullient young middle and high school students arrived and instantly every inch of the building was filled with sounds of playing, chatting, dancing, singing, ping pong, dodgeball, and tag. Once the kids ran into the well-lit and brightly colored rooms, they felt back at home ready to express their creativity and fun artistic side.

Attendance at Boys and Girls Club recently skyrocketed. The non-profit youth services center team called on us to remodel their aging facility to better serve the local community and help care for the high population of students from low-income families, who attend the organization’s before and after school programs.

Our design-build team transformed the existing multi-story facility into a “positive place” with an updated teen center, gym, game room, lunch room, and classrooms. The design shored up and re-supported the existing heavy-timber-framed roof. To make more energy efficient and welcoming entrances to the 18,700 square-foot-facility, our team added front and rear vestibules. The work also included gutting and reconfiguring many of the rooms and bathrooms. Upgrades like new flooring, paint, wall textures, ceiling finishes, cabinets, and energy efficient lighting throughout enliven the space and better suit the Boys and Girls Club’s program needs.

For the second phase, we successfully coordinated and pre-planned the removal and replacement of the outdated and inefficient HVAC system. They installed a new, energy-efficient system and upgraded the power and water systems all while maintaining a safe environment for the youth.

The Boys and Girls Club provides an important community service that many families rely on to keep their kids safe while they work. That’s why they chose our team to work with them to remodel the facility while keeping the doors open. Originally scheduled in 3 phases over 7.5 months, the team came up with a revised plan to shorten the schedule and reduce project costs while still keeping the facility open.

TOgether we
make amazing happen.
