The Wallman Wellness Center aquatic addition is fully enclosed and construction is underway on the inside of the facility.
Air ducts have been placed throughout the addition and walls have been placed to separate locker rooms, classrooms and mechanical rooms from what will be the main pool area.
Work also continues on laying the red brick facade to the outside walls to match the architectural look of the Wellness Center.
The full project is scheduled to be complete by late summer.
The $11 million project is completely student funded. Students voted in spring 2013 to approve construction and bond financing through student fees. Those fees will increase this fall to support operation of the facility.
The project includes a leisure pool, lap pool, sauna, fire pit, a “wet classroom” for activities like scuba instruction, gender-neutral locker rooms and additional women’s and men’s locker rooms.
The Wallman Wellness Center was built in 2001, with an earlier addition completed in 2007. The center also houses the Student Health Service, Disability Services and Child Care facilities.
