Verdex Construction says it has broken ground on the Pompano Beach Senior Activity Center at 2005 NW 9th St. This project for the City of Pompano Beach consists of a one-story, 8,500 sq. ft. facility with indoor and outdoor amenities.

A municipal document from May 2020 says the project had a $8 million budget. Architects Bermello Ajamil & Partners from Miami were to receive $599,038 in pre-construction design fees, and Verdex was to receive $100,000 in pre-construction fees, with the overall construction cost to be determined.

The West Palm Beach-headquartered contractor says it has hired more than 40-percent of its subcontractors and vendors from Pompano Beach, fulfilling a promise to the city that a significant portion of the work would be executed by local firms.

The interior will include multiple activity rooms, a fitness center, a spacious lobby and lounge area, a prep kitchen for catered events and office space with special anti-microbial HVAC coatings for top air quality and cleanliness. There will also be an outdoor activity area. Construction is expected to be complete in approximately 10 months.

“This community has asked for a senior activity center for many years so we look forward to providing them with a modern, long-lasting gathering space to enjoy,” said Verdex Construction president Rex Kirby. “We are also proud to have achieved a 40-plus-percent local subcontractor participation for this project which ensures a good portion of the work remains with Pompano Beach based businesses.”
