New Projects: Columbus State University; University of Wisconsin-LaCrosse

A roundup of groundbreakings and grand openings.

The Cougars of Columbus State University celebrated an October groundbreaking for a $26 million student recreation center that is expected to become a major hub of student life. Designed by St. Louis-based Hastings & Chivetta Architects and Atlanta-based Lyman Davidson Dooley Inc., the 98,000-square-foot facility will house two basketball courts, a fitness center, multiple group exercise rooms, an indoor jogging track, a multipurpose court, two racquetball courts, an indoor soccer field, volleyball courts and a large events area. The project also includes the construction of a natatorium with a 25-yard lap pool, a leisure pool, a therapy pool and saunas. The facility is expected to open in October 2010.

In less than a year's time, crews completed the renovation and expansion of Roger Harring Stadium and the Veteran's Memorial Field Complex at the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse. The approximately $16 million first phase of the project included stadium press boxes, suites and bleacher seating for some 6,200 spectators, nearly doubling the seating capacity of the previous stadium. The synthetic turf football field is surrounded by a 10-lane track, and other stadium amenities include new locker rooms, a fitness center, and the relocated and redesigned Veterans Hall of Honor. The adjacent multiuse sports complex features a soccer venue, a football practice field, and lighted intramural and recreation fields. . .
