J.E. Dunn Construction and RTA/HOK Architects continue to 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.
Structural steel started to go up on the east side of the facility during the month of May, and will continue to go up in June as work moves to the west side of the building. Crews also completed work on surrounding parking lots and the installation of sanitary sewers. During June, managers expect to start concrete work on the south side of the building, start to pour concrete on the floor decks on the east side and begin exterior framing.
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.
