This new 16,000 square foot addition and 55,000 square foot renovation project incorporates a new fitness center, dance studio, trainer's spaces and international competition squash courts on one side and the existing field house with its glass cage as home to running track, two -basketball courts and renovated squash facilities on the other side.
Besides the new fitness center, two new international competition squash courts anchor the new addition. Additionally, four courts were converted for international play and six American courts were also rehabilitated. A dance and aerobics studio is complete with sprung maple floors and an adjustable dancing barre. Highly desirable is Choate's trainer suite used for player rehab, conditioning and training. A taping and first aid room, wet therapy room and physical therapy suite are incorporated in order to keep players healthy and fit.
A fresh face was required of the existing field house with renovation including skylights, lighting and finish upgrades providing a bright new and fresh feeling to Choate's existing "cage" with running track, basketball arena, and support facilities. A student and faculty locker room renovation was also included with this project phase.
