Braintree-based Northeast Interiors has won the $2.6 million contract to build the town's first senior center.
Plans for the Adult Community Center call for an 8,000 square-foot building resembling a barn on a vacant piece of land off of West Mill Street between Adams and Harding streets.
A new street, which will be named Icehouse Road will be built with a railroad crossing to access the site.
The building will allow seniors to move out from a single room in the Pfaff Center, which hosts space for a variety of community groups. Construction is expected to require about one year to complete.
