Construction throughout campus continues to progress on both the heating and cooling loop line and the Royce and Pam Money Student and Recreation Wellness Center.
The ACU Student Recreation and Wellness Center blog reports that work on the new building over the summer was primarily structural. According to the blog, construction during the first part of the month of August has been concentrated on the completion of the basement as well as initial work on the future pool area.
Once completed, the new Royce and Pam Money Student and Recreation Wellness Center will feature two new gymnasiums, a new weight area, leisure and lap pools, aerobics facilities and a climbing wall. Office and classroom spaces will also be included in the 113,000-square-foot building.
“The Rec. Center project is still carrying roughly a 50-day delay,” according to the blog. However, this delay is expected to be recovered by mid-year of 2011.
Loop line construction is now concentrated outside the Don Morris center as well as between Brown Library and Mabee Hall. The new pipes are a part of a $5 million project to install a new heating and cooling system on campus, set to be finished in September.
