Wellesley, MA – Dacon’s design and construction of the 130,000sf Boston Sports Institute in Wellesley won the Metal Building Contractors and Erectors Association (MBCEA) Award of Excellence for the educational and recreation category.

Each year, seven buildings in the U.S. are selected by the MBCEA for exceptional design using metal building systems.

The Boston Sports Institute is a sports ecosystem consisting of four areas: two NHL rinks, a warm therapy pool and 2012 Olympic trial pool, an indoor turf field, and a physical therapy/strength conditioning area with suspended jogging track.  A professional grade facility, it services community, collegiate and team athletics. The facility was built in 10 months.
