Halfacre Construction Company was selected to build the new preschool at the SKY Family YMCA in Venice.

The $1.5 million project is slated to begin in June 2017 and wrap up by the end of the year. The existing preschool and SKY Academy locker room will be demolished, and a new 10,000-square-foot building will take its place. The new facility will include a 12-classroom preschool for children ranging from infants to 5 years old.

Previously, Halfacre Construction Company completed three projects for the SKY Family YMCA, including a renovation of the facility’s gymnasium and gymnastics centers, a cafeteria and kitchen addition and updates to its SKY Academy, a tuition-free, Sarasota public charter middle school.
“Halfacre Construction Company was the natural choice for this project,” said Ken Modzelewski, CEO of the SKY Family YMCA. “Their team is very familiar with our facilities and operations, and the onsite superintendents provide a safe and clean environment during the construction process. Halfacre Construction Company offers creative design concepts and flexibility that fits within our scope and budgets.”

Located at 701 Center Road in Venice, the new facility will incorporate a feng shui aesthetic with an abundance of natural light.
