The Cambridge School of Weston

I enjoyed working with Stanmar because we had a shared goal. We wanted to build the best building for CSW and I feel very proud of the building that we built together.

Overview

The Cambridge School of Weston had outgrown their existing gymnasium. CSW selected Stanmar to design & build a new, state of the art 40,000SF Health & Wellness facility to transform the activities the School could offer to the community while also providing a Guaranteed Fixed Price. By locating the facility on the lower, undeveloped part of campus, the new facility both provides new programming opportunities for boarders and day students while opening up the campus for future development. The facility opened on time and on budget in August of 2016.
