J.E. Dunn Construction and RTA/HOK Architects continue to make progress on the William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center with foundation work. Walls, drilled piers and grade beams continue to be installed and steel arrived on the site last week. The project remains on budget and on schedule for an April 2020 opening.
The 104,000-square foot Hybl Center will be the first of its kind to integrate undergraduate and graduate education with clinical practice and research in a sports medicine and performance environment. Penrose St. Francis Centura Health will manage the clinical operations and 1,500 exercise science, human anatomy, physiology, athletic training and nutrition students are projected to study in the facility. The project received supplemental funding from the Regional Tourism Act of the Colorado Office of Economic Development and International Trade through the City for Champions initiative.
