Building Initiatives Continue in The Campaign for Proctor

By Scott Allenby


Farrell Field House renovations at Proctor Academy are underway, with the first phase of the project focused on overhauling the gymnasium.

Proctor’s brand new, net-zero ready dining facility, the Brown Dining Commons, opened its doors in September 2016, followed by a new dormitory on the west end of campus in December. These buildings represent the first two completed projects in a $30 million capital campaign to address Proctor’s aging infrastructure and learning spaces. Earlier this summer, Proctor shifted its attention to the aging Farrell Field House where a complete renovation of the building will overhaul the gymnasium, fitness center, and former dining hall into a facility focused on the health and well-being of Proctor’s students, faculty, and staff. New classrooms and wellness studios will reside on the southern end of the building, while a new fitness center, athletic training room, and office spaces will overlook a refinished gymnasium on one side and the Farrell Field turf field complex on the other.

This phased project is underway, with Phase 1 (new gym floor) scheduled to be ready in September, and Phase 2 (new fitness center, athletic training room, office spaces) scheduled for completion in December 2017. Stay tuned for more updates as this project continues!
