Maugel, Dellbrook|JKS Complete Clubhouse Reno

Nashawtuc Country Club

Concord, MA – Maugel Architects and Dellbrook|JKS announced the completion of the 55,000sf clubhouse renovation and expansion at Nashawtuc Country Club in Concord.

Dining room

The new facility provides a modern farmhouse-style clubhouse designed with clean lines, contrasting materials, and human-scale proportions featuring expanded wellness, fitness and dining amenities, and event spaces.

Top design goals for the project included improving circulation throughout the clubhouse, creating a better separation between public and member-only areas, streamlining access to food service, and creating an advanced health and fitness center. The existing clubhouse was difficult to navigate due to numerous prior additions and renovations. Special attention was given to improving clubhouse circulation by creating clear and distinct paths for visitors and members. Public and private event spaces were strategically arranged to connect to essential food service areas, while providing privacy for member-only areas.

The new design has a large centrally-located kitchen with two full cooking lines: one to serve ballroom events and another for restaurant service. Dining areas were placed on the same level to increase staff efficiency and improve the member experience.

New fitness and exercise areas feature a 3,500sf fitness center equipped with the latest pneumatic equipment and a 1,000sf fitness studio that hosts a variety of classes, including yoga and kickboxing. Expanded and renovated locker rooms were also added to serve the club’s growing membership.

The 15-month construction project was led by Dellbrook|JKS and supported by TF Moran, Inc.; Meisner Brem Corporation; AHA Engineers; Colburn & Guyette; Lemon Brook, LLC; CSL Consulting; and Creative Office Pavilion. The Dellbrook|JKS team worked closely with town officials to keep the project moving forward during the pandemic, and although faced with supply and material delays, the team strategically navigated the challenges to a successful project completion.

Strategic planning for the project began in 2014 when Maugel Architects led discussions with club leadership to explore options to improve their members’ experience. The existing clubhouse had aging building systems and limited space for growth. A multi-year planning effort was undertaken to establish priorities and determine a budget for the project. After a thorough analysis and an extensive consensus-building campaign, a renovation and expansion of the facility was undertaken.
