  • Total transformation of outdated facility on tight schedule
  • Project costs substantially under Owner's budget

W.S. Cumby completed construction for a 50,000 SF total gymnasium renovation of Bern Schwartz Gymnasium at Bryn Mawr College.

Design for the renovated fitness and athletic center met the college’s goals of bringing fresh air, natural light, and comprehensive ADA accessibility - even to exercise equipment and the pool - to an outdated facility. A new glass-enclosed, two-story entrance lobby wows visitors with views to the heart of campus and organizes circulation around a dramatic circular stair. Abundant daylight and improved ventilation combined with extensive interior renovations totally transformed the previously outdated gym. Improvements to the building core included new locker rooms and support facilities, flexible interior programming, and upgraded offices, training areas, and equipment rooms. The second-floor fitness center includes a “building within a building” multi-purpose room.
