Falmouth Girls Locker Room Update
June 12, 2018
The Falmouth Girls Locker Room Project at Family Ice Center took another step forward when Adam & Harding, LLC., was selected as the general contractor for the project. Planning documents were put together by Port City Architecture with time generously donated by the firm’s Principal Andy Hyland. The contractors also, generously offered to donate their management fees and are willing to work with other in-kind supporters for this project.
Jim Bonnvie, a member of the team promoting the project and longtime supporter of Falmouth hockey was instrumental in making the selection of the general contractor. He said “Shaun Stairs was very transparent with the team about what could be done and straight forward about pricing, aiding in the decision making. It also helps that Shaun is a hockey guy and was very interested in doing this project to promote girls hockey.”
Shaun Stairs of Adam & Harding explained their interest as follows: “Both Myself and Josh Valiquet (co-owner) have be honored to be a part of the initial planning process and are very excited to be selected as the General Contractors. We are always enthusiastic about our projects, but when you combine hockey and kids; that’s something special. I personally can’t wait to see the look of these young athletes faces when they see their new home for the first time.”
The project remains on track for the 2018-2019 season in large part due to significant momentum on the fundraising front over the past two months. The effort has now raised over $136,000, which is just under 70% of the project target, based on the latest construction estimates.
“We are entering the home stretch for the funding of this project and really hope to rally the community in the next month or two to put us over the top” says Sam Pierce, a campaign chair.
