Kaplan Construction is proud to have sponsored the 2016 “Celebrate Our Teens” Gala, held at the Brookline Teen Center on Saturday, March 5th. The event recognized youth achievements in the Brookline community and raised money for the privately funded teen center. Kaplan was a gold sponsor for the third annual event.
In 2012, the Kaplan team was selected to renovate the former auto body garage and transform it into what is now Brookline’s only dedicated youth center. Today, the space features a bowling alley, gym, recording studio, lounge, outdoor patio, café, aerobics dance studio, game rooms, and study hall. The BTC features many environmentally-responsible elements including the use of sustainable building materials, water efficient practices, and a green mechanical and electrical system within a more energy-efficient exterior envelope. This project achieved LEED Silver certification in 2015.
