Forish Construction to be Builder

Residents of Greenfield,

For twenty years the discussion on a new venue for the Council of Aging has been discussed.  Last year Mayor Martin and the Town Council approved the funds to finalize that discussion into a physical reality. 

Last fall, step one of this process occurred with the moving of the School Administration from the Davis Street School to the Greenfield Middle School. With that move, the Davis Street School was ready to be assessed for demolition.

During the past few months the building has been sealed and all of the hazardous material professionally removed.  The City was given the all clear in Early April and the physical demolition of the School has begun. 

The Designers of the new John Zon Community Center are Dietz and Company Architects from Springfield Massachusetts.   The Project Management Company is P-Three Inc., of Norwell. Both firms have been working for a year with the Mayoral formed building committee to focus on a design that will serve the growing elder population for the near future. 

With the design and bidding finished, we are happy to announce that the final team member is the contractor. Forish Construction of Westfield will build the Zon Center. Forish is no stranger to the other team members as the Project Manager, the Designer and Forish recently completed the wildly successful Westfield Senior Center.   

The Team is complete, the task is at hand and we want you to be informed. A newsletter like this will be published every 2 to 4 weeks depending on activity.
