The Town of Braintree Recreation Facility Contractor Evaluation Committee has completed their review of the Petersen Pool and Rink complex bid from the ESG Associates Inc. dba Edge Sports Group. The committee made a favorable recommendation to Mayor Kokoros to move forward and accept the bid from the Edge Sports Group. 

The evaluation committee that completed the review includes:

  • Jennifer Keane, Braintree High School Varsity Swim/Dive Coach 
  • David Fasano, Braintree High School Varsity Boys Hockey Coach 
  • Tom Devin, Braintree School Committee Member 
  • Larry Mackin, District 6 Town Councilor 
  • Nicole Taub, Chief of Staff and Director of Operations 

“I wish to thank the Recreation Facility Contractor Evaluation Committee for their efforts in completing an in-depth review of the bid proposal,” said Mayor Kokoros. “I look forward to working with Edge Sports Group to continue to move this project forward in a positive direction.” 

Now that an award has been made, the Town and the Edge Sports Group have begun the process of negotiating the terms of the ground lease, including establishing a swim and skate schedule for residents, the general public, the Braintree High School Swim and Hockey teams and Braintree Youth Hockey. “My office has been in communication with representatives from these organizations and the Town Council to ensure that everyone has access to the facility and can enjoy the pool and ice rinks once the sports complex opens,” said Mayor Kokoros. The lease will detail preferred use time for the High School and Youth Hockey programs, as well as public swim and skate times. 

“EDGE Sports Group is thrilled to have been selected to enter this next stage of discussions with the Town of Braintree and we thank Mayor Kokoros and the Committee for the opportunity,” said Brian DeVellis, President of ESG Associates Inc. “We look forward to building on our strong relationship with the community that began four years ago with the Thayer Sports Center.  We have learned quickly that Braintree is a passionate community who loves their sports; and we all hope to enhance their experience.”
