The S/L/A/M Collaborative and Construction Services (SLAM) has announced the completion of a new fitness space, the Emerson Fitness Center, for The Gunnery, a co-ed boarding and day school for students in grades 9-12 located in Washington, Conn. This collaborative design-build project transformed a 3,000-square foot theater building on the school’s campus into an athletic, fitness and weight training facility for the student population and staff to use year-round.

Interior renovations include new flooring, lighting, wall treatments, a mirror wall, and a mezzanine space for Peloton bikes.

The integrated design-build team at SLAM worked with the school to develop a program, reconfigure the existing space, propose conceptual imagery, develop a project budget and phased logistics plan for construction work on the occupied campus.

Interior renovations of the double-height wood frame structure, with exposed ceiling steel truss work, included new flooring, lighting, wall treatments, a mirror wall, and a mezzanine space, formerly housing the theater’s sound and lighting booth, now set up for Peloton bikes.
