SOUTHBOROUGH, MA– Erland Construction is teaming up with S3 Design, an architectural firm dedicated to the design of athletic facilities, recreation centers, and health clubs, to renovate 6,350 square feet of space within St. Mark’s School’s Elkin’s Gym.
St. Mark’s sees athletics as a key element of their students’ education, building skills and character, teamwork and perseverance. Together, Erland, St. Mark’s, and S3 Design will create a new athletic performance center to meet the evolving wellness needs of the school’s student population.
St. Mark’s School is a coeducational preparatory school in Southborough, Massachusetts, founded in 1865. The T. Jefferson Coolidge ’50 Athletic Performance & Wellness Center is Erland’s sixth project with St. Mark’s. This project will provide state-of-the-art training, fitness, recreation equipment, and programs including space for free weights, indoor turf, and rowing machines.
The construction will take three months and will be ready in time for the school year to begin in the fall.
“It is our goal to partner with the school to upgrade the building’s infrastructure to support new state-of-the-art fitness equipment and health & wellness programs,” said Scott Bates, Academic Group Manager. “This transformation underscores St. Mark’s commitment to its students and to the ideal of ‘Do and Be Your Best.’ We’re excited to be back on this evolving campus.”
Amongst other projects at St. Mark’s, Erland has recently renovated the independent school’s Center for the Arts.
