Project Challenges and Outcomes
The project includes renovations to the Tippin building (including the gymnasium and natatorium) and a new recreation pool. Due to the Athletics’ schedule and events the University hosts, the building cannot be closed for renovations.
Given the need for the building to be fully occupied during construction, a complex phasing plan was developed by the design team and University. The renovations will be implemented in 8 sequences. This sequenced phasing will allow the University to maintain their athletic schedule for sports programs and community and local high school activities that use this space.
