To further its mission and advance the goals outlined in its Strategic Plan, the Horace Mann School implemented a variety of academic, health and wellness projects within the existing Middle and Upper Division Campus. The Campus Athletic Center work encompasses the new Loria Family Aquatics Center, renovation of Prettyman Hall, and new Friedman Hall.
New Loria Family Aquatics Center
The Loria Family Aquatics Center features an eight-lane competition pool that accommodates water polo, swimming, and youth instruction. The program also includes new locker rooms and a 150-person observation deck.
Prettyman Hall Renovation & New Friedman Hall
The restoration and renovation of Prettyman Hall expand athletic offerings and support campus wellness initiatives. The renovation included a new fitness center, lower level gymnasium, minor modifications to the upper gymnasium, renovation of locker rooms and new mechanical systems. The adjoining Friedman Hall creates an atrium lobby to welcome visitors and improves campus accessibility.
Role + Responsibilities
Horace Mann retained Zubatkin early on to develop a Project Implementation Plan that outlined an overall strategy and roadmap for the development of the various projects. The team managed the programming, design and construction, as well as the financial controls, administration and reporting. The Zubatkin team also advised on the municipal approvals process, neighbor and community relations, and phasing and logistics strategies to allow the school to maintain ongoing operations. The firm’s In-House Technical Group assisted in the review of drawings and oversaw the bid and award process for trade contracts.
