As we head into May 2018 RCS Construction has begun the demolition of the former food pantry building and the old Piggly Wiggly grocery. The building was located next to the YFS building on Adams Street.
The first phase of the expansion project is removing the existing structure from the lot and prepare the ground for the expansion of the Youth & Family Services facility. The project is close to $14 million. When complete it will add nearly 100,000sf to the current building.
Today is the exciting ground breaking ceremony for our Youth and Family Services E. Adams Street Facility Expansion project! Here's a little information about this project: Project Owner: Youth and Family Services Contract Amount: $8,642,000.00 Project Manager: Bob Conway Project Superintendent: Greg Nolan Project Description: The project consists of the removal of two existing buildings, significant site reconfiguration, new and maintenance of existing utility infrastructure, approximately 65,000 SF of new construction and approximately 10,000 SF of remodeled space.
