Philips Academy Borden Gym – Andover, MA

BWK Construction was chosen as the general contractor by Phillips Academy in Andover, MA to complete the historical renovation of their Borden gym cupola. The project entailed renovations to this 100+-year-old facility involving extensive roof work that included a red copper dome and custom slate work. Detailed pointing and caulking repairs were completed and a fiberglass molding system replicated the wood molded railings, balusters and panels.  The vintage cupola was painted and restored and the weathervane was refinished in gold leaf. The project is one of many completed by BWK Construction and continues the efforts of Phillips Academy to restore the look and feel of a bygone era.
