Select Paint & Finishes was hired by a general contracting firm to perform the painting of exposed ceilings and epoxy finishes within the new 31,000 square foot mixed use sports facility at Boston College’s Harrington Athletic Village, which will be called the Pete Frates Center, home to the Boston College baseball and softball programs. The building’s namesake is a 2007 graduate who captained the baseball program his senior year and was diagnosed with ALS in March 2012 at the age of 27. He and his family made significant efforts to raise awareness and money in the effort to find a cure for the progressive disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease. Pete is most known for being the inspiration behind the Ice Bucket Challenge that went viral in the summer of 2014. The building features player lounges and locker rooms for both programs in addition to three umpire locker rooms. The space also includes an equipment room, athletic training room, strength and conditioning space, hitting tunnels/turf field, and hospitality space.
