Indoor Practice Facility

Update for the two weeks beginning April 15 and 22, 2019

Construction of the Indoor Practice Facility

Construction of the new Indoor Practice Facility began in mid-January, 2019 and will continue through the winter of 2020. This facility will provide much-needed indoor training space for Dartmouth’s varsity student-athletes during cold and inclement weather. It will be located directly east of the Boss Tennis Center and north of Scully-Fahey Field in Dartmouth’s east athletic campus. The primary feature will be a 56,000 square foot FieldTurf® surface which is nearly three times the size of the temporary turf used inside Leverone Field House’s track.   

What's Happening

  • Installation of concrete footings and foundation knee walls will continue.
  • Sewer connection on south end of the site
  • General excavation and stone backfill

What to Expect

  • Perimeter fencing will be in place.
  • Regular work hours will be Monday – Friday, between 7 a.m. – 4 p.m., in accordance with town regulations. Any future weekend work will be communicated on this site. 
  • Construction vehicles will travel to and from the site through Thompson lot and Route 120.
  • No deliveries will be made via Tyler Road, except for the entry/exit of a crane.
  • Typical large equipment noise and moderate vibrations will occur during installation of steel sheeting.
  • To minimize vibrations, our contractor is using ground thaw technology to make excavation through the top frozen layer less impactive. Vibrations will be monitored to assure they do not exceed what is acceptable per common construction practices.
