The phased expansion and renovation
of the Hart Athletic Center at the top of Mount Saint James on the campus of
the College of the Holy Cross will be fully occupied by the end of 2017. Eight
distinct implementation phases allowed the college to maintain use of the
building throughout construction. The visible and transparent complex will
provide a comprehensive compliment of facilities, including strength and
conditioning, sport medicine, and practice venues, aimed at improving performance,
increasing awareness, and supporting all of the Crusaders' Division 1 programs. The college's primary goal for the project was
to elevate facilities for all programs to help recruiting and improve the development
opportunities for student athletes. The new addition includes a 60' high indoor
turf practice facility, an auxiliary practice gymnasium, suites for basketball
and administration offices, a dynamic strength and conditioning center, various
meeting rooms, a new main entrance lobby, and new locker rooms, to ensure that
all programs have dedicated team rooms. The renovations will provide additional
offices, a rowing studio, a new sport medicine suite, expanded accommodations
for equipment handling, and a new locker room for the women's ice hockey program,
which is also now competing in Division 1. The design completely transforms the
1975 original building, giving it a greater presence on campus and a renewed
pride in the storied history of Holy Cross athletics.
