Erland Completes the Newton Country Day School Wellness Center


NEWTON, MA — Erland returned to the Newton Country Day School of the Sacred Heart campus to construct the new 47,000 square foot Kathleen R. Martin Wellness Center. In 2007, Erland completed the award-winning library addition to the historic Towle mansion.

The Kathleen R. Martin Wellness Center is designed by D’Agostino Izzo Quirk of Somerville, Massachusetts. The new free-standing four-story structure is built into a hillside adjacent to the school’s playing fields and boasts a gymnasium with two full-court basketball courts, multiple squash courts, indoor rowing practice facility, dance studio, fitness room, locker rooms, training rooms and classrooms.
