Alexander Building Construction Breaks Ground for New Athletic Training Center at Dickinson College

Harrisburg, PA, April 24, 2013 . . . Alexander Building Construction Co. has begun construction of the new Durden Athletic Training Center at Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA. The new facility is named to honor the tenure of President William G. Durden and his wife Dr. Elke Durden, and will support the football, lacrosse, field hockey and soccer programs.

"Alexander is excited to be entrusted to manage such an important project for Dickinson’s storied athletic program," says Rick Seitz, President of Alexander Building Construction Co. "The new facility will greatly enrich the College's field sports and also enhance that area of the Dickinson campus."

The project involves the demolition of the existing locker room facility adjacent to Biddle Field and the construction of a new multi-faceted athletic training facility.

The two-story Durden Center will feature:

  • Separate locker rooms for men's and women's lacrosse, football, field hockey, coaches, officials and visiting teams
  • Strength-training and free-weight room
  • Sports-medicine facilities
  • Laundry and equipment room
  • Team-meeting/event room with a viewing platform overlooking Biddle Field
  • Exhibition area to honor Dickinson athletics

A tight construction site next to very active playing fields will require the Alexander project team to undertake extreme measures in order to minimize the impact on active athletics schedules and summer camp activities. The project is designed to achieve LEED Silver certification and is scheduled for completion in November 2013.
