Baxter E. Luther Boys and Girls Club project was started as a result of community partnerships coming together for Jacksonville’s youth.
Summit completed a renovation and expansion that included the enclosure of an existing 6,000 SF basketball court into a gymnasium; a 1,020 SF addition to the gymnasium to include an office, restrooms and mechanical room; a 2,000 SF expansion of the recreation building to include classroom, computer room, arts and crafts room, circulation room and restroom; upgraded parking area, sidewalk and a new entry gate.
The expansion project was made possible by generous support, insight and vision from local community partners of the Boys and Girls Clubs: Baxter E. Luther Family, Phyllis Arnold and family, Paul and Caren Felker and family, Sally Lott and family, Deerwood Rotary Club, Arlington Rotary Club, and PQH Group.
PQH Group is the architectural team on the project, as well as longtime supporters of the Boys & Girls Club organization. They contributed their services, and played a critical role in bringing together the people necessary to realize the project in collaboration with the Deerwood Rotary.
Summit received an overwhelming response from subcontractors as well, covering nearly half of the construction cost with contributions of their time, expertise, and materials.
