Sac State received approval today to spend $77.5M on a new fieldhouse and rec center.
Copied from the Regents website. Looks like Gonzo has raised the $25M required. Start date in Oct. 2006
2. California State University, Sacramento
Recreation Wellness Center, Phases I and II PWCE $68,772,000
California State University, Sacramento, wishes to proceed with the design and construction of Phases I and II of the Recreation Wellness Center. The project will provide facilities to promote a well-rounded educational experience linking sports education, health/wellness, athletics, and campus activities.
The planned Event Center Arena and Stadium Improvement projects will complete the future build-out of the sports complex.
As part of the first phase of the Recreation Wellness Center, the existing undersized field house must be relocated to free up adequate space closer to the campus core for the student health center functions, and the student life sports activities. The existing field house (along with three trailers) no longer meets the programmatic and space needs of the university. The new facility will be two-stories, approximately 27,000 GSF, built on the south end of the existing Hornet Stadium and integrated into the current and future expansion of the stadium and track and field venue. The new athletic training facility will provide space for strength and conditioning weight room, coaches’ offices, meeting rooms, sports medicine, and locker rooms for the football and track and field programs.
The project is currently designed to finish the first floor spaces completely and leave approximately 9,000 GSF of shell space on the second floor that will be completed using donor funds. The initial phase is estimated to cost $8,943,000 for design and construction.
Phase II of the Recreation Wellness Center, approximately 140,000 GSF, will construct basketball/volleyball courts, racquetball courts, a fitness center, fitness classrooms, equipment room and checkout, recreational sports offices, an indoor running track, and locker and shower rooms on the northern end of the stadium. The Center will also replace the existing Student Health Center (#33) and provide students with a traditional health center and emergency care services. Medical care programs will be balanced with mental health, nutrition, fitness, and exercise. New programs and services provided through this facility will enrich the quality of student life and promote on-campus activities. This second phase is estimated to cost $59,829,000 for design, construction, and equipment.
In spring 2004, the students voted and passed an increase in the university union fee to fund the Recreation Wellness Center project. Language in the fee increase referendum required that the university raise $25,000,000 of donor funds prior to the fee implementation, which the campus has recently achieved.
An additional one million dollars in funding will be provided from
Student Health Center Reserves. The funding for the initial phase of the Recreation Wellness Center, relocating the field house, will be financed through the CSU Systemwide Revenue Bond program based on anticipated revenues from the auxiliary lease payments and future donations for the completion of the second floor.
RESOLVED, By the Board of Trustees of the California State University, that the 2005/06 Nonstate Funded Capital Outlay Program be amended to include:
1) $68,772,000 for preliminary plans, working drawings,
construction and equipment for the California State University, Sacramento, Recreation Wellness Center, Phase I ($8,943,000) and Phase II ($59,829,000) project.
