DARIEN, CT – Throughout several years of careful research and planning, JGRA has worked with the Darien Y to develop a design that addresses the Y’s need for an expanded and updated facility, and construction of a new addition is now underway. The project includes a gymnastics addition and new nursery school, as well renovations to the lobby and parking facilities. Notably, the Y is focusing on issues of environmental responsibility in this project through use of clean power and energy systems.
Construction is scheduled to allow programs to run continually throughout construction. Groundbreaking of Phase I occurred in March 2011, and Phase II construction is slated to begin this fall. More information about the Y’s building improvements can be viewed on the Darien Y website under Building Project.
