FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Upper Valley Aquatic Center Commences 9600 Square Foot Addition
Monday, August 29, 2016 –White River Junction, VT—Due to the growth of Upper Valley Aquatic Center’s (UVAC) membership base, increased day pass use from the community, and especially an increase in the number of families using the Center, the Upper Valley Aquatic Center’s Board of Directors approved an expansion plan. “We listened to feedback from our members and guests and realize that it’s time to add some features that will make their experience even better,” stated Andrea Ciardelli, the President of the UVAC Board of Directors. “We hired Bread Loaf Corporation to work with us to design and build a 9600 square foot addition. The new space will house a much larger family-friendly locker room with private changing suites; a new group exercise studio for classes such as Yoga, Pilates, stretching, and more; expanded fitness room space for strength and cardio equipment; and a physical therapy center with Be Fit Physical Therapy.” In keeping with the existing modern open floor plan, the addition will feature lots of natural light, visibility to the beautiful Vermont hillsides that surround the Center, and a fitness mezzanine that overlooks the fitness floor.
The Upper Valley Aquatic Center is owned by the Town of Hartford, Vermont and is operated by The Sports Venue Foundation. Since the Center is self-reliant and requires no town funding, the new addition will follow this model. The Sports Venue Foundation has already secured pledges from local supporters to fully fund the expansion.
Construction will be phased so that no interruption of UVAC’s current programs will occur. The grand re-opening is expected in May, 2017.
