Renovation of Aquinas College Phys Ed Building?

22 posts in this topic

I noticed on the Integrated Architecture website this project as well. Looks like Aquinas will renovate their dated Phys Ed building at their entrance along Fulton, and it will be full Silver LEED Certified. Wonder what the timeline is on this?

I never thought I'd see a new library on that campus, and that's finally happening ...

... so I guess anything is possible.

you should see the inside :sick:

Yep.. that one is kinda sick. I'm glad I took all my classes at the Jarecki building - now thats a nice place.

Maybe now they'll add some more parking now... I got 36 credit hours and 5 parking tickets while at AQ. :D

Any idea when this project is slated to start? Should be a great addition!!!

I don't think this project is a "for-sure" thing just yet. It seems that Aquinas is still looking for financial support for the project.

that's correct - it's been in the works for at least five years now, though, so we'll see.

aquinas likes to have one capital campaign at a time...

by the way, the rendering doesn't really do the project justice - i'm not sure why that has become the 'signature' image. i think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Would love to see an updated rendering if you have one? I think this is a 'stock' image for Aquinas from architect....

Pictures please!

In an article about United Solar Ovonics in the Press today, it says the new Aquinas Phys Ed. building will have over 6000 square feet of solar film on the roof.

I figured instead of starting a new topic, I'd post in this one as it continues the topic of Aquinas development.

Not exactly how long this has been up, but administrators have proposed a new Fieldhouse to replace the existing on along East Fulton. This is the old one as it sits now:

And this is the proposed renovation/addition:

A new indoor track and recreation complex will be added to the existing building, which itself will undergo a major renovation to include a convocation center, new fitness center, health center, athletic training room, locker rooms, classrooms, and physical education department and athletic department offices.

There has been talk about a new field house for years. It looks like they may just be ready to commit. I'm sure Calvin's new complex, and the fact that Cornerstone redid their facilities fairly recently only helped the push as well.

It was maybe five years ago that there was quite a bit of design done on this. Then it sat waiting for the money. If I recall, the existing roof in some areas was to be raised to make more room.

Interesting that the rendering is from late 2007 and they are just posting it now.

Aquinas recently updated the Physical Education website with new computerized model of the renovation and floor plan.

Fieldhouse model - Main floor plan (warning: both are PDF files)
