The project, designed by DLR Group with local partner Pappas & Pappas Architects, includes a 12,000-square-foot strength and conditioning area for football, an Olympic sport weight-training area, a football locker room, a sports medicine area and a training lounge. One unique feature is a chamber that simulates conditions at lower altitudes, which can help athletes prepare for competition closer to sea level. — Press release

Purdue University is beginning to discuss plans for renovating the south end zone at Ross-Ade Stadium. School officials met with architectural firm Populous to begin to develop a master plan for the project. The firm will modify original plans that were based on artist renderings in 2015, under the school’s previous athletic director. — purdue.rivals.com
