The Amherst College athletic complex exterior The Athletic Complex underwent an extensive renovation in 1999. This adaptive reuse scheme succeeded despite a strong temptation to remove the antiquated facilities and build a new modern field house.

The renovation includes the gymnasium itself, accompanying locker rooms and team rooms, fitness center, training rooms and administrative offices. Completed in 1999, the newly renovated gym features a skylight that allows natural light to brighten the gym and make it a much more inviting space.
