Tile installation has started on both pools inside the Wallman Wellness Center aquatic addition.
The concrete deck for the facility is finished and the center wall that divides the leisure and lap pools is in place. Glass will be installed in the center wall and north exterior wall in the next two weeks.
Light fixtures also have been installed, some of the plumbing for the locker rooms and bathrooms is finished and furniture has been placed in offices.
The ceiling grid frame is finished in most of the facility. Ceiling tiles are expected to be installed in a few weeks.
The full project is scheduled to be completed this fall.
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 Wallman Wellness Center was built in 2001, with an earlier addition finished in 2007. The center also houses the Student Health Service, Disability Services and childcare facilities.
