Our Response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.


The College of the Holy Cross selected BOND to provide preconstruction and construction management services for the renovation and expansion of its Athletic Center. This revitalized, state-of-the-art facility is the central piece of the College’s plan to transform and rejuvenate their Athletics program.

Composed of a 138,000 SF renovation and a 143,000 SF addition, the new Hart Center at the Luth Athletic Complex houses the following:

  • 64,000 SF indoor practice facility with 100 yards of turf field
  • Auxiliary gymnasium for basketball and volleyball
  • 9,500 SF of new space for strength and conditioning training
  • 3,000 SF of new space for sports medicine services
  • New MEP systems, offices, locker rooms and an expanded main lobby


  • Ensure the safety of students, faculty, staff and pedestrians during an active construction site
  • Phased construction around occupancy and seasonal sports schedules
  • Upgrade life safety systems throughout the existing building


  • Develop a comprehensive and iterative preconstruction process: Work closely with the College and design team at Sasaki to determine a detailed sequencing plan that enabled the facility to remain operational throughout its renovation
  • Collaborate with stakeholders to determine seasonal use of the facility for sports such as basketball, hockey, and swimming is integral to the plan’s development
  • Minimize disruption by taking portions of the facility off-line and renovate during each sport’s off-season
  • Eliminate clashes and ensure a seamless tie-in with the addition’s new building systems by using laser scanning to pre-coordinate new sprinkler, fire alarm, lighting and HVAC systems
  • Utilize the building model in subcontractor procurement to provide for budget certainty


  • Transformed the Hart Center into a state-of-the-art facility that supports the College’s athletics, health and wellness programs and benefits the entire student body
  • Completed early 2018
