Structural steel continues to go up as crews from J.E. Dunn Construction make progress on the William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center. The project on the west side of campus remains on budget and on schedule for an April 2020 opening.
Crews have worked from the northeast corner to the southwest corner to place steel. The final piece of steel is scheduled to be put into place during a “topping off” ceremony at 8:30 a.m. July 31.
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.
