Providing New Amenities for Club Members

Construction Phase Oversight

B&F was brought on during construction to supplement the Club’s staff with construction experience. The Club was in the midst of a $12 million construction project that included the demolition of eight residential buildings and the construction of six new buildings over a five-acre site. B&F monitored construction progress, assisted the team in troubleshooting when issues arose, and reviewed applications for payment on behalf of the Club. As part of our work reviewing change orders, we helped the Club’s staff to implement a system for monitoring job progress and weather delays.

Luxury Amenities

Merion Cricket Club sits atop its Great Lawn with a historic Frank Furness clubhouse. Its amenities include state-of-the-art tennis, squash, and cricket facilities that attract national championship events. The Club’s food-service program garners a reputation for high quality dining. B&F helped to make sure that their new facilities were of the same high standards that members expect.

Client Testimonial

“Becker & Frondorf helped us monitor construction progress and negotiate change orders for our project to add new club amenities at Merion Cricket Club. They were extremely helpful, and we came to rely on them as an advisor to Merion when we needed to make decisions.”

Caleb Tindall, General Manager & COO, Merion Cricket Club
