More about the project

The Harold Alfond Athletics and Recreation Center at Colby College is a new 350,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility that transcends conventional athletics and recreation center design, efficiently and elegantly integrating all of Colby’s indoor competition venues, training areas, and other support spaces to comprehensively serve every athletics, recreation, and wellness program on campus. Sited on land formerly occupied by playing fields at the campus’ northwestern edge, the building provides a new gateway to the campus. It is organized around a central courtyard that connects all three levels and provides clarity and orientation for both visitors and everyday users. The project is expected to achieve a minimum of LEED Gold certification and is part of a cohesive district representing the cutting-edge of SITES-certified landscape design and implementation.
