Utah State University Strength and Conditioning Center

Logan, UT 2014

Project Description

Utah State’s strength and conditioning center is built on existing university property at the northwest corner of Romney Stadium. The state-of-the-art multilevel facility, which alleviates the overcrowding issues that affected the former 5,800-square-foot strength and conditioning center, accommodates almost 400 athletes from 16 sports programs. It is the largest facility of its kind in the Mountain West Conference.

Facility features include areas for weight training, cardiovascular workouts, and speed and agility training, as well as an incline training ramp that connects the facility’s second and third levels. The design integrates the glazed office spaces centrally with views over all conditioning spaces. The facility also provides panoramic views of the valley to the west and the mountains to the east.

The overlapping angular geometries of the interior result in open spaces, and balconies create a dynamic sense of movement that reinforces the building’s core programming. The facility exterior portrays the raw strength and elegant movement of the human body with sloping angular walls and roof forms, while simultaneously serving as a focal point for gameday gatherings and athletic events. The Aggie brand with logo is featured prominently on the building’s glazed exterior and located strategically throughout the interior.
