This project is the construction of a 130,000 sf student recreation and convocation center. The recreation center will include space for fitness/cardio and weight training, three multipurpose rooms, a rock climbing wall and an indoor track. The convocation center will provide bleacher seating for approximately 3,600 with additional floor seating to accomodate approximately 4,000 for non-athletic events. This space will act as a multi-function venue providing courts for men's and women's basketball and women's volleyball, locker rooms, food service concessions, coaches offices, a hospitality suite and support spaces.
Upon completion of the Student Recreation/Convocation Center the Williams Brice building and gym will be refurbished and mechanical systems upgraded to provide improved space for student fitness and intramural activities.
