Project Updates – Jan. 2

Happy New Year from Recreation Services!  Over the holiday break, crews were busy replacing the floor in the weight room and repainting the Student Aquatic Center hallway.  Both areas have re-opened for activity.  The second phase of the flooring replacement project is currently underway in the entrance and lower cardio areas.  Self-powered cardio equipment has been relocated to the West Gym and is available for use.  Another project currently taking place is the addition of chilled water lines in the East Gym.  This project may have a minimal impact on activities within the East Gym.  We appreciate your patience as we work to improve your facilities.

Here are a few photos of the progress:

Project Updates – Dec. 20

Work continues on the replacement of the weight room flooring at the SRC-North.  The old floor surface has been removed and crews are installing new M0ndo flooring.

Once the weight room flooring is complete, crews will move to the lower cardio and lobby areas.  This will cause some areas and equipment to be offline.

Painting crews are currently preparing the Student Aquatic Center hallway for a fresh coat of paint.  This work means Student Aquatic Center users will be re-directed through the northwest corner of the West Gym to enter the SAQ.  For those patrons with a locker in the Student Aquatic Center, please check with the Operation Center staff in order to gain access to your locker when the SAQ is closed.

Softball Fields Undergoing Renovation

The softball fields located at the corner of Sprigg and Bertling streets are undergoing a much needed face lift.  A specially formulated dirt and sand mixture is being mixed in with the existing material to create a more playable surface for softball.  This new mix should allow for better drainage and more playability when rain occurs.

Special thanks to the staff in Facilities Management for their efforts in making this project happen!

Parker Gym Renovation Nearing Completion

Renovations to the upper gymnasium in the Parker building are nearing completion with the recent installation of SportCourt flooring.  The new floor will provide a suitable surface for multiple activities including volleyball, roller  and floor hockey, and indoor soccer.  As you can see in the before and after photos below, this facility has come quite a long way since serving as the practice facility for the Southeast gymnastics team.
