ISU Student Fitness & Kinesiology/Rec. Building - Normal, IL
Currently under construction, this building integrates education and health/wellness and will serve as the home for both the School of Kinesiology and Recreation Services. The building also incorporates support spaces for Wellness, Nutrition, and Nursing programs that will use the building for education, training, and counseling. Instructional, clinical, and activity space are intermixed throughout the building. Activity spaces include lap/recreation pool, weight and fitness, aerobic/dance, gymnasiums, racquetball/wallyball, climbing wall, and a 1/8th mile jogging track. Instructional spaces include bio mechanics research lab, athletic training clinical instruction lab, psychology of sport and physical activity lab, exercise physiology lab, anatomy computer lab, teaching analysis lab, and classrooms.
In addition to storm and sanitary sewer work, site utilities involved a combination of direct buried and new/modified utility tunnels for routing campus steam, pumped condensate, chilled water, potable water, CATV, telecom, and BAS cable systems to the new building. Medium voltage power distribution work involved modification and extension of 5KV ductbank, new switchgear, transformer and 480V service entrance. Energy modeling is used to optimize and integrate architecture and engineering design and 3D modeling is used to enhance design team coordination and Owner involvement.
