Demonstration Hall - alterations to multi-use court floor
Project phase: Construction
- Recreation and fitness is a priority of the MSU campus community, as reflected in the Bolder by Design Framework and the Health Campus Initiative.
- Consistent with that priority, the University invests in and supports a wide range of recreation and fitness activities, programs, and facilities that are accessible to students, faculty, and staff.
- The level of demand, an aging infrastructure for the three primary intramural facilities, and an emphasis on creating and supporting a culture of health and wellness resulted in the need to undertake a strategic planning effort.
- Over the past two years, efforts have been made to develop a broad-based approach to enhancing recreation and fitness opportunities.
- The Provost initially established an exploratory committee with representation from students, faculty, staff, and external advisors to guide and inform planning.
- Following this exploratory committee planning, consultants were engaged to assist with the development of a health and wellness framework plan to guide reinvestment that supports the Healthy Campus Initiative.
- Projects that include reinvestment in existing intramural facilities, including fields, and Demonstration Hall were identified as priority improvements.
- These improvements will replace systems and finishes that are beyond their useful life, provide additional capacity, and improve the user experience.
- Upgrade of the arena for adaptive sports, club sports, intramural sports, student use and other campus activities to include:
- installation of a new arena floor to support adaptive sports, roller blading, soccer, ROTC and other programs
- installation of new dashboards and a netting system
- installation of ceiling circulation fans
- installation of LED lighting systems, including emergency lighting
- painting as required
- removal/abatement of ACM floor tile and miscellaneous mechanical piping
- upgrade of east restrooms to current codes
- miscellaneous architectural, mechanical, and electrical items
- Construction start: May 7
- Ready for occupancy: Aug. 17
- $2,150,000, including a $175,000 contingency
- The project will be funded by the general fund or debt financing with debt repayment from the general fund - healthy campus initiative.
