Loyola University Maryland | New Fitness & Aquatic Center
This project started with the demolition of an extremely well built Boumi Temple, and included clearing existing parking lots. Major excavation and utility relocation took place with tremendous care and attention paid to close-by residential neighbors. The Fitness and Aquatics Center is a brick clad, concrete and steel structure with extensive use of aluminum curtainwall and masonry. The building has three separate structural grids for the Olympic pool and diving tank, two gyms, dance and aerobic studios, climbing wall, squash and racquetball courts, and smaller meeting areas. In addition to acres of new parking, this project involved the construction of a new soccer field.
