Memorial Gymnasium, the main athletic complex on the Quincy University campus, was scheduled around the clock by varsity activities and special events, leaving little time and space to meet the recreational needs of the non-athlete.
The university engaged Hastings+Chivetta to design the new Health and Fitness Center to complement the existing Memorial Gymnasium. The programmed spaces in the new facility include a three-court multipurpose gymnasium, a six-lane natatorium, an elevated jogging track, racquetball courts, a fitness center, and an aerobics room. The interior of the existing Memorial Gymnasium was renovated to complement that of the new facility.
The new Health and Fitness Center serves a facility that promotes sportsmanship, individual achievement, and personal fitness for the students and faculty of Quincy University.
