Connolly Kicks Off Construction of 74,000 sq ft $3.4 Million Danvers Indoor Soccer Facility

BEVERLY, MA--(Marketwire - February 3, 2011) - Connolly Brothers, Inc. -- -- Construction Management firm specializing in commercial/industrial construction has completed steel erection in Danvers, Massachusetts for a new 74,000 sq ft indoor soccer complex. The $3.4 million facility is expected to open in May 2011.

Connolly was hired by developer Mark Mscisz of MRS Management LLC to design and build the Danvers Indoor Sports facility. Connolly was involved early on in the project to provide
pre-construction services including estimating, budgeting and assistance in permitting. 

Mscisz said, "With the completion of four separate regulation-size indoor soccer fields, the Danvers Indoor Sports complex will meet the soaring demand for indoor playing space on the North Shore. While soccer is played around the world even in inclement weather, here in New England -- as we're seeing this winter -- indoor sports facilities turn a seasonal sport into a year-round activity."

Connolly president/owner Stephen J. Connolly IV explained, "We worked with Mark and his partners Kelly and Don Cragg to come up with a design for the 74,000 sq ft building to house four indoor soccer fields. It is a pre-engineered steel building with a snack bar, coach's rooms, restrooms, pro shop and a second story mezzanine for viewing the fields. The building will also include a two story fitness and athletic training facility. We are very excited to be a part of this project. Mark Mscisz and the Cragg family are bringing an extremely valuable asset to the local and surrounding communities."

"The popularity of soccer is skyrocketing here on the North Shore," Mr. Cragg added. "Amateur soccer exploded from 100,000 players in 1974 to over one million in the early 1990's. Today US Youth Soccer registers over 3.2 million players annually, ages 5 to 19 through 55. Massachusetts has become the second largest state youth soccer association in the United States with more than 185,000 registered players. We are particularly happy to be working with Connolly Brothers on the project."
