Club Division

There is never a good time to remodel! But now more than ever, many private clubs are seriously considering remodeling the clubhouse for a host of reasons, many of which may surprise you.

Neighborhoods change, socioeconomic status changes and lifestyles change. With 10,000 baby boomers retiring every day, and couples having children later in life, the amenities they desire to match their lifestyle should be considered when remodeling the club.

Hiring a project / construction management firm early on in the pre-construction phase will help in the transition to the construction phase. Selecting the contractor should be based on recommendations from your Remodeling Committee. The contractor you select is critical to maintaining good relations with the members and mitigating risk for the Board of Directors.

ELAN understands what it takes to remodeling and we understand the three steps that all clubs should take to get to their final destination:

  • Intelligence Gathering
  • Gentle Persuasion
  • Constant Communication

  • There are no shortcuts, and the success of the project will depend on how well each of these three steps are followed. More. . . .

    Construction Management

    From the first sketch to the final permit, ELAN documents every detail so you don’t have to worry. In an effort to recover Tenant Allowances quickly, we provide you with a “Completion Package” – which contains every document associated with the job, work in progress photos and every thing needed to receive final sign-off from every entity involved in the project.

    Our mission is to complete the job on time and complete the final punch list to get your Tenant Allowance back as quickly as possible.


    There are times when you need a GC and other times the GC needs an Architect or Engineer. In either case, ELAN would like to know more about you and your services. If we can help one another to meet our respective clients needs then everyone wins.

    A recent landmark restoration job in Soho NY required the best Architect money could buy. We interviewed nine of the best and selected the best of the best. If you want to be considered on the next job, we need to know who you are. Register now. If you have a client in need of a GC, we are standing by and eager to learn more. Many of our clients have been with us for over 17 years – we know how what it takes to keep a client happy.

    Subcontractors and Vendors

    Ask anyone that has worked with ELAN in 35 years what they like the most and 9 of 10 will say they love how quickly we pay for services rendered.

    As a sub or a vendor it’s all about cash flow and with ELAN, we pay quickly and in return you provide us with quality workmanship done on time.

    We are always in need of reliable subs and vendors across the country. To be considered for the next project, we need current information so we can invite you to the eBidRoom where you will find all the specifications on jobs listing trade and vendor requirements.


    The word ELAN means “vigorous spirit or enthusiasm” and that’s how we roll.
