Skanska USA has been awarded a $113 million contract for Boston’s College’s new 224,000-square-foot recreation center.
Designed by architecture firm Cannon Design, the facility will contain a state-of-the-art fitness center, jogging track, natatorium with lap and instructional pools, four wood-floor basketball courts, three tennis courts, two multiactivity courts and multipurpose rooms for spin, yoga and fitness classes.
Construction of the facility, which will replace the Flynn Recreation Complex, is underway at the former site of Edmond’s Hall on Thomas More Road. Completion is scheduled for summer 2019. The recreation center, made possible by a lead gift from Trustee Margot C. Connell and her family, will be named in their honor.
Skanska has been involved in more than $1.5 billion worth of work on academic campuses in New England over the past 10 years. Most recently, Skanska announced that it had been awarded a $52 million contract to provide pre-construction and construction services to create Deerfield Academy’s new 136,000 square foot Athletic Complex.
