M. Sullivan and Son Ltd. are proud to be selected as the general contractor to build the new East Kingston Recreation Centre, located at 779 Highway 15 in Kingston’s east end.
The $13.5 million, 22,000 sq.ft new one-story building will feature a full gymnasium, fitness centre and a 2,400 sq. ft. outdoor splash pad.
“We are very excited to be part of the build for the Kingston East Community Centre. This is an extremely important project for the city and, specifically, Kingston East residents’” stated, Greg Sullivan, Vice President/General Manager, Kingston Division.
The facility has also been designed to substantially reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It fits with the city’s main strategic priority to demonstrate leadership on climate action. In doing so, it will also incorporate measures to offer significant savings on operational costs on an ongoing basis. These include a geothermal heating and cooling system, LED lighting and rooftop solar photovoltaic technology.
