EDGE Sports Center, Phase I is a 75,000 SF Indoor Sports Complex with ice and turf, Bedford … developed with the core desire to provide Bedford and the surrounding communities the opportunity to participate in and take advantage of a year round athletic facility that provides state-of-the-art recreational amenities for all ages and abilities. ESG was responsible for all the site and building design, as well as contracting for legal, survey, engineering, environmental, resource area delineation, and site, building and ice surface contractors. The experience of the Edge Sports Center was recognized as the Bedford Chamber of Commerce 2010 Business of the Year “in recognition of a highly innovative and successful business that is creatively involved in community activities”.
The EDGE Sports Center Phase II … The EDGE Sports Center was only months old when the founders first realized that facility expansion was necessary. Founder Brian DeVellis began negotiations with the abutting landowner Massachusetts Port Authority in Spring 2008 leading to Massport releasing a request for Proposals in April 2010. DeVellis responded and was awarded the right to negotiate a 20 year lease with the Authority January 2012. DeVellis designed the expansion of 2 synthetic artificial turf fields along with a fabric dome structure for winter use, making the 2008 existing turf excess and available for a second ice sheet for the ever expanding hockey program. DeVellis reached lease execution April 2012, regulatory approvals shortly thereafter, and design development drawing as well as construction documents. Construction broke ground in June 2012 and opened January 2013.
