Easton, MA – BOND recently celebrated the topping-off ceremony for the 24,000sf renovation and 50,000sf addition to the Stonehill College Sally Blair Ames Sports Complex in Easton.
Stonehill is expanding its current sports and recreational facility to better complement the college’s recent growth in student population. Working closely with design firm Sasaki Associates, BOND is providing construction management services and has already completed full preconstruction services for the project as well.
Originally built in 1988, the renovated Sally Blair Ames building and new Rev. Mark T. Cregan, C.S.C. Athletics and Fitness Center, will house additional recreation spaces for group exercise and dance on the existing first floor, with weight and fitness facilities and student locker rooms located in the addition.
Stonehill College’s athletics program will occupy 12 new locker rooms and a dedicated varsity weight room. Athletic office space and the Lou Gorman ’53 Pavilion will also be housed in the facility.
BOND has utilized both in-house BIM and laser scanning services to analyze the facility’s existing conditions and develop its infrastructure. Detailed safety protocols and mitigation practices are ensuring no disruption to continued athletic uses for students. The project is slated for completion in July 2015.
“BOND is excited to turn the Sally Blair Ames Sports Complex into a revitalized center for campus athletics and recreation,” said Robert Murray, BOND president. “This facility is an important component of Stonehill and one we are proud to enhance for the campus community.”
