Duxbury, MA – Nadeau Corporation Construction Development and Engineering was recently awarded the construction contract for the Duxbury Senior Center expansion project on 10 Mayflower Street. The $2.8 million project was designed by Steffian Bradley Architects out of Boston.
The new two-story addition will be used for the lifelong learning program, fitness classes, other health and education programs, and the social day care program for people with early-stage Alzheimer’s disease.
Duxbury had 2,300 residents 60 and older in 2000, according to census numbers. In 2010, the number had grown to 3,530, and it is expected to reach 5,550 by 2020.
Many towns are dealing with the need for expanding these services as senior populations continue to grow and people are healthier and living longer. The number of residents 60 and older has grown faster than projected and will continue to increase, according to town authorities.
