University Recreation Center

Auburn University

The new 240,000-SF Recreation and Wellness Building on the campus of Auburn University offers a wide variety of student wellness activity spaces, including eight basketball courts, group fitness studios, cardio lofts, fitness tower, academic offices, a multi-level suspended jogging track, a multipurpose activity room, and outdoor recreation areas.

 

The primary driver behind the enormous scale of this project was to enhance the ‘student experience.’ The 1/3-mile running track winds around a 40 ft tall climbing wall. Project goals included a strong emphasis on access and maintenance of mechanical and electrical equipment. In order to achieve LEED Silver certification, the design included a green roof, low flow fixtures, air barrier, daylight harvesting.
