In order to meet the students’ growing demands for health and recreation facilities on campus, Ithaca College called on Welliver to construct a new 40,000 square foot barreled-roof fitness center with two (2) below-grade gymnasiums and an equipment room with free weights, treadmills, and other equipment. This fitness center has allowed Ithaca College to provide more amenities to their current students as well as attract potential students that are looking for a college that provides numerous extracurricular options. The Fitness Center holds several workout rooms, basketball courts, squash courts, a pool, as well as the College’s Office of Recreation.
- Welliver self-performed all concrete, masonry, and carpentry work with our skilled laborers. This helped provide the project with consistency and a tight-knit ideology on quality construction methods and practices.
- Foresight and careful planning gave the project team advanced warning of construction obstacles such as weather. In this case, the foundation schedule was accelerated to ensure backfilling before possible frost damage could occur.
- Welliver’s accurate budgeting process, and regular communication with the Owner, provided increased control over potential project costs, allowing the lowest cost outlay for the project.
subcontractors were managed to complete the HVAC, electrical, and equipment installation needs for this state-of-the-art fitness facility.
