Colby College has been undergoing construction on its new $200 million state-of-the-art athletic centers. It is believed to be the largest in the New England Small College Athletic Conference and will have the first Olympic-sized swimming pool.
The facility will include an indoor competition center with a 13,500-square-foot fitness center and a 200-meter track. The center will be available for use by the community, region, and state and will be among the best Division III facilities in the country, according to officials.
The Colby College Athletic Center architects specified commercial and medium density fireproofing materials, along with Intumescent Coatings. Island International Industries of New England (Seekonk, MA), Isolatek International’s Recognized applicator, is applying CAFCO 400 and ISOLATEK SBK-113, an Elastomeric Sealer/Keycoat for CAFCO 400. They are also applying the industry leading water-based intumescent coating, CAFCO SprayFilm WB 5 on the exposed interior structural steel. The facility is expected to open in 2020.
