Danvers, MA – Windover Construction recently completed construction of the Wellness Center at St. John’s Preparatory School.
The new facility is situated strategically on the school campus, up the hill from Cronin Memorial Stadium and offering great viewing down to the field and a full press box integrated into the building. The other main turf athletic field is just to the east of the new facility, creating a key link between this heavily used outdoor space and the athletic and locker spaces within the building. The new facility features a four-court field house with two tracks, an indoor aquatic center, a two-level fitness space, locker rooms, four multi-purpose rooms, a gathering space with café, and administrative offices.
Along with lead designer Flansburgh Architects, Windover led the preconstruction and construction for the wellness facility, which now provides a dedicated center for students to come together around a wide range of fitness, recreational sports, and interscholastic athletics.
With abundant natural light and visually connected spaces, the striking facility is creating new opportunities for students to learn, develop, and build a community around a growing number of programs that focus on health, wellness, and movement.
In addition to the construction of the Wellness Center, Windover’s design-build team managed the extensive renovation of the school’s existing Cronin Memorial Stadium, which included a new synthetic turf field, 400m running track, parking lot, and bleachers. The overall project also included demolition of the existing maintenance building and the construction of a new pre-engineered maintenance building situated at a new location on the campus.
