BC Recreation Center

Boston College
Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts

In order to accommodate a growing student population, Boston College decided to expand its campus through the construction of the Margot Connell Recreation Center. The state-of-the-art Center provides students with the opportunity to participate in a variety of activities, including a competition-size indoor pool, indoor track, multi-purpose courts for squash, badminton, and basketball, tennis courts, climbing and bouldering walls, wellness room, fitness rooms, training rooms, locker and equipment rooms, administrative offices, along with other amenities.  

TG Gallagher fabricated and implemented the HVAC and plumbing for the new, four-floor, 250,000 square foot, stacked multipurpose recreation center. Multiple pump skids, valve packs, and pipe runs, for both trades, were prefabricated in the TGG prefab facility. The project featured Arctic Cool Condenserless Chillers, the first time this system was used in the New England area, as well as one of the first installations in the USA.
