The WELL expansion project will add square footage and renovate current spaces in both the Campus Recreation and Student Health and Counseling areas. The existing building is Type IB and is a certified LEED Gold building with expansion components designed for LEED Gold certification as well. Swinerton is self-performing concrete on this project.
Due to the impact of COVID on gym/fitness center operations, we worked with campus administration and Union WELL Inc. administration in January to help advance the project timeline so that services to students would be less impacted later in the year should on campus services resume in fall. This will result in the entire project finishing earlier than was originally anticipated.
Highlights include: expanded locker room capacity, additional strength and free weight fitness space, additional group fitness studios, additional lounge space, multiple all-gender restrooms, additional classrooms and counseling offices, an expanded athletic training facility, and an expanded and renovated urgent care facility.
