Gammon Gymnasium Phase III-Hampden-Sydney College

Construction Type: 
Renovation

This project

Hampden-Sydney College was founded in 1775 and it is important to them to preserve the historical character of their campus.  This negotiated project was a series of additions and the historical restoration to one of the oldest buildings on campus.  J.E. Jamerson and Sons matched the existing architectural woodwork details by utilitizing our woodworking shop in the Jamerson Building Supply Company.

The new complex, that includes Gammon Gymnasium and its additions and renovations was renamed the Kirk Athletic Center. The Kirk Athletic Center houses all the intercollegiate athletic teams with the exception of basketball. The gym contains auditorium seating for 500, and acoustic alterations were made to enhance renovations and functionality.
