Hampden-Sydney College
Kirby Athletics Center

Kirby Fieldhouse is an existing 3-story fieldhouse from 1978, which consists of three major sections; Leggett Pool, the Athletic Center, and a fieldhouse/gymnasium. The project is currently under construction.


MCWB Architects was tasked with coming up with design options for its renovation to bring it up to today’s construction standards and accommodations. MCWB presented two final designs with renderings that aim to freshen up the look and feel of the building. In general, the building will get repainted throughout including doors, frames, exposed waffle slab ceilings and exposed steel; lighting fixtures will be replaced throughout along with electrical outlets, switches, plumbing fixtures, fire alarm and sprinkler systems; and new heating, cooling, ventilation and hot water systems will be installed. In addition, an elevator in the Athletics Center will provide access to all three floors, making the building ADA accessible. Small design changes will make a big impact within this building.
