St. Sebastian High School rotunda and administration building

Needham, MA – Bowdoin Construction served as construction manager on what was one of the largest independent school campus development projects going on in New England over an 18-month construction period in 2017 and 2018. The West Campus Center athletic complex project in Needham involved 70,000sf of building construction and several acres of sitework.

Robert Olson + Associates Architects was responsible for the building design, and Hines Project Management served as owner’s project manager.

The project team was honored by ABC-NE with its prestigious “Eagle” Excellence in Construction Award for the West Campus Center project.

St. Sebastian High School

The work took place in four phases with the new additions built around the school’s existing athletics and administrative facilities which were kept accessible and operational throughout the course of construction.

The new and expanded facilities feature a 10-sided rotunda with large windows and custom maple acoustical wall and ceiling panels; two basketball courts, one of which has a balcony overlook; six squash courts; a wrestling arena that accommodates two mats and two sets of bleachers; locker rooms; administrative offices for athletics, admissions, college counseling, business, development, communications, and archives; conference rooms; theatre/lecture space; and a new elevator.

Exterior work included the construction of new synthetic turf fields for soccer and baseball, as well as new batting cages.

St. Sebastian’s athletic program is integral to the overall development of its students, and athletic competition is viewed as an extension of the classroom, supporting its mission to educate young men in body, mind, and spirit. Bowdoin, and all members of the project team, understood the significance of this campus-changing project and further recognized the complexity of the logistics involved in executing the work while maintaining ongoing operations of this active campus.
