We're Home!

We are so excited to welcome you to our newly renovated Service Center! Girl Scouts of Nassau County has waited over a year and now proudly shares some of the new features and improvements to our home.
If you have passed by 110 Ring Road West over the last year you may have noticed some of the changes. Yes, the building has been expanded; we have increased the square footage by 2400 feet. We have redesigned the main entrance and enlarged the GSNC Shop and Cookie Cupboard with their own entrances making it easier to manage a stroller or cart loaded with cookies!
We added larger windows and redesigned the entire lower floor to better serve our members. The curb appeal has been modernized with LED lighting, new signage and new awnings. The landscaping has been redesigned to accent the architectural changes and newly paved parking lot.
Inside the building you will be greeted by a bright and open design, full of vibrant colors and images. The GSNC Shop is larger and has more floor space to make your shopping experience even better.  Also redesigned is the Volunteer Resource Center with easy access from the main building and shop. The Living History collection has its own space to allow us to showcase many of the hidden treasures we have in the collection. Electronic options populate every meeting space, making them state of the art centers of learning. Don’t forget to check out the bathrooms which feature an all-in-one sink! It is very cool and will help us save on water and soap usage, as well as eliminate paper waste.
The second floor features an open concept floor plan with large windows, pops of color and streaming natural light for all to enjoy. Almost all the staff will be housed on this floor and their workspaces have been designed for maximum efficiency and takes into consideration the latest ergonomic concepts. A newly designed collaborative space encourages people to come together in a comfortable environment where creativity and teamwork can flourish.
Throughout the building you will find improvements designed to save money and help our environment.   A new HVAC system, roof and insulation ensures we will be warm in the winter and cool in the summer. 

These systems will use less energy and reduce our costs. Many of the finishes are made of recycled content, offering noise abatement and reduced maintenance.
