The American Legion Building is undergoing an interior reconstruction. This project began in late January 2019 and is progressing on schedule. The Legion Building is over forty years old and was purchased by the Town of East Bloomfield from the American Legion Post. Over time the building began to show its age and renovations were needed. The town previously installed new windows, a new security system, as well as a new metal roof.
The next phase was to remodel the interior of the building. East Bloomfield secured the services of Architect Rob Meehan to develop the design of the interior. The approved drawings are posted in our meeting room at the Town Hall, 99 Main Street, East Bloomfield. John McKinnon Construction was awarded the bid as general contractor. His work began immediately after being awarded the bid. The work began in January 2019 with the removal and specified demolition. The East Bloomfield Highway Department participated in this initial work.
After demolition, rooms have been reconfigured and walls have been built and the kitchen has been relocated to the back portion of the building to maximize space efficiency. The electrical, plumbing and HVAC work has begun as well.
We still have a long way to go before completion. However, the work is moving along under the careful eyes of John McKinnon and Rob Meehan. Town Councilmember, Frank Fessner, is on the town's buildings and grounds committee and he has also been involved since the beginning of this project.
We have attached some pictures of the interior remodeling. These pictures were taken on March 19, 2019.
