Alfond Youth Center

Expansion and Renovations

Waterville, Maine

Changing community needs prompted the Boys and Girls Clubs and YMCA of greater Waterville at the Alfond Youth Center to add programs centered around healthy lifestyles for people of all ages. Particular emphasis is on supporting healthy families through activity, nutrition and community engagement. In support of this mission, Harriman was selected to provide design services to add and renovate their facility.

The renovations included reorganizing the center’s main lobby to facility access to existing and new programs, reconfiguration of locker rooms to create youth and family lockers, creation of a wellness suite to accommodate a partnering health care provider, and updates to the center’s kitchen and cafeteria. Security and life-safety improvements are also being upgraded as part of the project.

Additions to the building provide new adult wellness and fitness studios, an elevated exercise track, a multi-purpose gymnasium and common gathering spaces.
