Andover, MA – Erland recently began construction on the Phillips Academy Snyder Center, built into a hillside adjacent to the Phelps Stadium end zone. A soil retention system is being utilized to support both earthwork and foundation activities while maintaining an uninterrupted athletic schedule for Phelps Stadium.
The new 98,325sf facility, designed by Perkins + Will, is a steel structure with curtainwall, storefront, masonry, and composite metal panel exterior. The Snyder Center will feature four tennis courts surrounded by an indoor track and 12 internationally rated squash courts.
The design also includes multipurpose fitness studios which overlook the football field, locker rooms, and training facilities. Anticipated completion is December 2017.
