The Andover Community Center expansion project began in August 2019 with the addition of 100 new parking spaces added to the East parking lot. As Fall approached grading and utility work was well under way and by Winter, we witnessed the pre-cast walls being put into place. As construction crews installed the roof-system we began to see what the newly expanded facility would look like. Interior work followed with the final expansion completed, Fall 2020.
Expansion areas include:
• An additional field house court and oversized gathering area (crash space)
• Multipurpose rooms for teens and seniors
• Sports complex
- Additional sheet of ice convertible to turf
- Team rooms
- Dryland training
- Meeting space
- Skate rental /Pro shop
- Walking track
• Office space
• Community meeting rooms
Several improvements have also been made to existing areas throughout the facility which include repairing concrete and installing new rubberized sports court flooring to courts 1, 2 and 3; the existing ice arena refrigeration system has been upgraded and the existing Community Meeting Rooms A and B have been repurposed into Senior/Multipurpose spaces.
In addition to the Andover Community Center expansion, the YMCA recently completed their expansion with the addition of a new gymnasium, new Kid’s Stuff space, more upper level fitness floor space and existing lobby area improvements.
