Indoor Practice Facility

Update for the two weeks beginning of Jan. 20 and 27, 2020

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

  • Site work is underway to complete the north side storm water retainage areas, in anticipation of spring tree planting in that area.
  • Installation of exterior wall panels continues. 
  • Installation of sheetrock, taping, and painting is ongoing.
  • Mechanical and electrical work is ongoing, including installation of field lighting.
  • Netting hardware, millwork, AV and branding will begin soon.

What to Expect

  • Regular work hours will be Monday – Friday, between 7 a.m. – 7 p.m., in accordance with town regulations.
  • The project team is working Saturdays and some Sundays (inside work only) in order to keep the project moving ahead on schedule. 
  • 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.
