Morrell Gym Bleachers Benched and Recycled, New Seating to be Installed

BRUNSWICK, Maine - It’s standing room only in Morrell Gymnasium these days, at least on the lower level, owing to the removal of the wooden bleachers as part of a renovation of the facility.

The bleachers were disassembled earlier this week and taken away to be repurposed as flooring. Metal parts were bound for a recycling facility. New seating manufactured by Hussey Seating in North Berwick, Maine, will be installed in the lower level, while existing seating on the upper level is refurbished.

Crews will also seize this break in athletic action to sand and refinish the floor, installing Bowdoin’s Polar Bear logo at center court, along with other marks.
