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.

New Basketball Goal in the Student Aquatic Center

Shoot some hoops in the SAQ! Water basketball players in the Student Aquatic    Center will notice a change in the backboard.  Due to damage and lifeguard sight-line restrictions, the original water basketball goal was replaced last week.  The new goal, as seen in the picture to the left, eliminates a “blind spot” for lifeguards observing the leisure pool.  This new goal also provides the ability for patrons to play basketball in the leisure pool while intramural water basketball is taking place in the lap pool.
