Williams College, Weston Athletic Complex

Williams College’s exciting new venues serve football, men’s and women’s lacrosse, women’s field hockey, and track and field. Athletes train with top-tier amenities at the Weston Field Complex—a versatile hub for students and the larger Williamstown community.

CHA spearheaded the design, including electrical aspects, for these new venues, an 8-lane, 400-meter track and field facility, a contemporary team pavilion, and spectator accommodations. Enhanced spectator facilities encompass ample seating, a press box, restrooms, concessions, and parking. At the ground level, the athlete support building houses adaptable team locker rooms, equipment and laundry facilities, and a sports medicine suite with direct field access and distinct areas for treatment, rehab, hydrotherapy, offices, restrooms, and a dedicated exam room.

This top-tier athletic complex enhances training opportunities and fosters a vibrant campus life for Williams College students.
