Leonard Center Athletic and Recreational Facility – Macalester College

Macalester College prides itself on its academic excellence. The new state of the art Leonard Center Athletic and Recreational Facility was ranked second nationally for the best athletic facility in 2014 among all NCAA Division II and Division III institutions. Superior Painting & Decorating was proud to be awarded the contract for painting and wallcovering finishes.

At exposed truss and deck ceilings in the Field House and Gymnasium, a 2-color paint selection was specified with 2 “M” shaped portions hand-painted in the schools accent colors. The Natatorium required painting of epoxy coatings prior to the pouring of the concrete at pool area to allow access to the high ceiling and wall surfaces. For this application, Superior Painting & Decorating used a 90’ boom lift. Much of the finishing work required use of scaffold or lifts for application of finish coat. Working with General Contractor, McGough Construction, challenges were overcome with the excellent results and quality workmanship needed for this project.
