Dickinson College – Carlisle PA

Fall of 2013, our install team found their way to Carlisle, PA home of Dickinson College where you will find…

  • 2,341 full-time students
  • 41 U.S. states and territories and 48 foreign countries represented
  • 10:1 student-faculty ratio
  • More than 50 percent of students study abroad
  • 12 men’s and 13 women’s varsity sports, plus club and intramural sports

This is exactly why our installers (working with Alexander Building Construction Co.) spent several weeks on the campus of Dickinson College to give the Durden Athletic Training Center including the men’s and women’s locker rooms and athletic facilities a complete overhaul.  And, Creative Surfaces is honored to have been a part of these updates by providing the custom built cabinetry including new open face lockers for the men’s football center, meeting room cabinetry, strength training room, AV cabinets, sports medicine chairs and cabinets, women’s field hockey lockers and plenty of storage cabinets.


The Project

For all the open front locker rooms, we used Formica “Maple Woodline”  (Naturelle Finish) plastic laminate for the exteriors and white melamine interiors.  We built 250 lockers for these locker rooms – some are enclosed while others have exposed cabinet interiors.   The open front lockers have built in benches that lift up for storage.  Above the lockers is a small cabinet with a Zephyr Combo Lock systems.

For the meeting room, strength training, AV areas, towel & trash drops, and sports medicine rooms we designed and built upper and lower cabinets using quarter sawn White Oak Veneer with stain finish; and white melamine interiors; and finished the countertops with Cambria quartz “Devon”.  There are twelve vanities throughout the Durden Athletic Training Center – all men’s and women’s vanities/apron boxes are constructed using Cambria “Whitehall”  with and total of twenty six Corian “Glacier White” undermount sink bowls.
