Project Overview

Opening for Spring Semester 2012, the renovated East Gym will be a student center dedicated to recreational programming. The all-inclusive facility will offer students, faculty and staff a better work out experience with renovated spaces specifically designed for their intended purpose or activity.

Planning for the project began in 2005, and ground was broken in November 2010. While the exterior of the building will remain largely the same, the project will renovate virtually all internal areas of the East Gym.

The project includes:

Drawings & Floor Plans

The architect that designed the project was King & King Architects, LLP and LeChase Construction is the firm overseeing the renovation project. All drawings and renderings were provided by Fitness Design, Inc. Floor plans were provided by King & King.

The project cost is $13.5 million. Most of the project funding will come from critical maintenance funds that are part of the current SUNY Master Capital Plan. Critical maintenance funds are specifically designated to address areas of highest priority need by maintaining building conditions at an acceptable level. In the case of the East Gym, the funds have been earmarked to upgrade heating and ventilating, lighting and space utilization with the building.
