CLIENT GOALS

The existing recreation center was in dire need of a makeover and increasing wellness center usage dictated that an expansion was necessary to accommodate the increased demand.  Increasing the natural daylighting to the facility was desired.  The College wanted to use this opportunity to present a new face to Community College Avenue and the surrounding neighborhood. 

SOLUTIONS

Improvements were accomplished by renovating approximately 22,000 GSF of space on two floors of the Recreation Center and underground corridor.  Former racquetball courts were demolished, walls between were removed and a new floor was added at the main level creating a new open plan equipment floor and area for staff offices.  Included in the design was the relocation of offices, multi-purpose classrooms and an athletic trainer room within the Recreation Center to free up the desired space for the Wellness Center.  A modern demonstration kitchen was a feature in the large classroom. The entrance expansion added a full glass curtain wall making the space visible to the street and created a new main entry for the Wellness Center, also considered a front door to the evolving campus.  A landscaped courtyard was included to make the new entrance more inviting.

RESULTS

The College recognized increased visibility and usage, welcoming students and community alike into a modern Wellness environment.

“Weber Murphy Fox has designed and completed two wellness projects for me at two different institutions. I had a unique role in both selecting WMF as well as working directly with them through the design, bidding and construction phases of both projects. I have been very pleased with their ability not only to design, but to incorporate user input and requirements. They developed strong teams and provided the highest level of professional input. In addition to their design ability and technical expertise, WM F's work was characterized by clear and frequent communications and a strong understanding of institutional requirements. They were a leader in resolving problems, and they were well organized to meet schedules and budgets.”
