A robust and transformative education requires a holistic approach to student wellbeing, advancing each Lawrentian’s intellectual, emotional, and physical potential. By combining athletics, recreation, and dining, the forthcoming Tsai Field House will meet this charge. A community resource unlike any other at an independent school, Tsai Field House will provide opportunities for competition, activity, socialization, and nourishment, extending the hallmarks of House and Harkness and inspiring the best in each Lawrentian.
With approximately 250,000 square feet of functional space, Tsai Field House will preserve and repurpose the best of Lawrenceville’s existing field house while adding new dining and athletic facilities that reflect the latest standards in sports and nutrition. Construction began in summer 2020.
Led by Lawrenceville’s internal Project Management Group, the School is partnering with Sasaki, an internationally recognized design and architectural firm; AM Higley, an industry leader in construction both nationally and internationally; and Stevens Advisors, a project management and owner representation firm. Together, we are striving for Silver LEED status.
Phase I is currently under construction, with an anticipated completion date of winter 2022. It will include a new pool, hockey rink, dining facility, community fitness center, and lobby.
Phase II is a renovation of the existing Field House, including our basketball and squash courts, indoor track, indoor practice facilities, wrestling room, and performance fitness center. This portion of the project is expected to open in fall 2023.
