The 72,000-square-foot, $46 million training center features an indoor multipurpose stadium, DLR Group says in a news release.
The center increases academic, weight training, recovery, and nutrition space available to Northern Arizona student-athletes.
To enter the building, visitors cross a 140-foot walking bridge that begins at the base of the tree line and elevates 20 feet to canopy level of the old growth trees before reaching the entry.
The building has the country’s largest high-altitude training chamber on a collegiate campus. It can simulate atmospheric conditions ranging from sea level to 12,000 feet, enabling students to train at higher elevations and recover faster at sea level.
The facility also has study areas, classrooms, a computer lab, and academic staff offices.
The strength and conditioning center more than doubles the size of the weight training area to 11,500 square feet.
The training center features three hydrotherapy recovery pools.
DLR Group is the architect, and CORE Construction is the contractor.
