The Comstock Community Center, under construction since March, is still on target to have renovations finished by January.
In addition to Parks and Recreation, Social Services and the senior center are in the building.
The northern portion of the “west wing” of the center that constitutes the first building phase scheduled to be completed by September, was originally built in 1955 and 1957.
“We’re replacing everything in the older part of the building,” said Ty Tregellas, project executive for Turner Construction, “and upgrading the mechanical and electrical infrastructure in the 1995 two-story annex.”
Upgrading that annex, which Comstock Building Committee Chairman Judy Zucker referred to as the “east wing,” is also a part of phase one.
Phase two will run from September to January and will include improvements to the southern section of the west wing and the senior center café.
As a part of phase one, the fire alarm system will be upgraded and a new sprinkler system will be installed throughout the building.
So far, the bulk of infrastructure replacements and the new exterior wall have been completed for phase one.
“Once we’re completely done with infrastructure,” said Tregellas, “we’ll be painting, installing the ceilings and Sheetrock, installing the electrical network, and putting glass into the new metal window frames.
“Now is essentially the rough-in stage,” he said.
