University of Lethbridge - Health and Wellness Centre
The University of Lethbridge 1st Choice Credit Union Health and Wellness Centre is a combination of new and renovated facilities which includes a triple gymnasium with retractable spectator seating for 2000, an elevated 200 meter running track, climbing wall, renovated lecture halls, and large fitness centre. A major challenge which was successfully addressed with this project was the requirement to maintain operational fitness and gymnasium facilities for students throughout construction. By recessing much of the bulk of the structure below grade, the building reinforces the original architectural vision of the campus - the integration of structures within the remarkable surrounding landscape. This LEED certified project was completed in partnership with Gibbs Gage Architects and Cannon Design Group.
