Design Achievement – Benedictine University uses the Rice Athletic Center for summer camps, conventions and special events. The University asked DLR Group to examine the building to determine costs for deferred maintenance and decided to maximize their investment dollars by upgrading several portions of the space while addressing the various infrastructure needs. DLR Group's design boasts an NCAA regulation basketball arena, indoor track, support lockers rooms, and pool renovation as well as a community/student fitness area and space for intramural sport programs.
Scope Summary – The scope of this project encompassed renovation of 26,000 SF of existing space including a new entry that serves as a welcome area for the fitness center, a hall of fame, the addition of a 3,000 seat arena, athletic offices, and other support spaces. DLR Group provided architectural design for this project.
