The $5 million expansion of the Hennessy Center is well underway. Since construction got underway in September, below-ground facilities have been relocated, the site has been excavated, and the concrete floor and walls have been poured.
The Hennessy Center expansion will include a new, regulation-size NCAA gym on the same level as the current gym, with batting cages that can be lowered from the ceiling. A new lower level will have a fitness center, dance studio, weight room, and coaches’ offices. Plans call for the current exercise room to become an Athletic Training Lab for students in the Athletic Training academic program.
“We have the highest praise for the way Holt Construction has managed the project so far,” said Bill Fallon, Clerk of the Works. “Construction is on schedule and slated for completion by the end of June.”
More than half of the money needed for the expansion has been raised. The College recently launched a new fundraising campaign to raise the remainder of the funds.
