Glastonbury, CT – The S/L/A/M Collaborative and Construction Services, a national, multi-disciplinary design firm, announced the completion of a new fitness space, the Emerson Fitness Center, for The Gunnery, a co-ed boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 located in Washington.
This collaborative design-build project transformed a 3,000sf theater building on the school’s campus into a new athletic, fitness and weight training facility for the student population and staff to use year-round.
The integrated design-build team at SLAM worked with the school to develop a program, reconfigure the existing space, propose conceptual imagery, and develop a project budget and phased logistics plan for fast-tracked construction work on the occupied campus.
Interior renovations of the double-height wood frame structure, with exposed ceiling steel truss work, included new flooring, lighting, wall treatments, a mirror wall, and a mezzanine space. Formerly housing the theater’s sound and lighting booth, it is now set up for Peloton bikes.
