Fairfield University : Fairfield, CT
As Fairfield University has grown and student recreational preferences have changed, the university’s principal indoor recreational center required expansion and renovation. The redesigned recreational complex incorporates additions and alterations which provide 12,000 sf of new fitness and activity space. The scope of renovation includes refitting the field house, locker rooms, racquet ball courts, and swimming pool. An elevated jogging track, an important new recreational asset, is to be added to the field house. The new fitness spaces connect to a generous new entry hall. This approach is meant to encourage contact amongst the building’s users and offer a welcoming face fronting the University’s main entrance avenue.
