University Center Rochester Health Sciences


Rochester, MN

This project consisted of the remodeling of approximately 69,000 SF of existing space at several locations on campus.  The existing gymnasium was converted into two levels by adding a new intermediate floor to provide additional space.  All building components and systems in the gymnasium vicinity were upgraded.  This complex, multi-phased project included re-waterproofing 18’ of concrete foundation wall around the entire perimeter of the old gymnasium.  This work was accomplished while keeping existing power, service, and other utilities in operation which involved temporarily suspending manholes and piping in this area while waterproofing work continued.

The project also included infrastructure and site improvements adjacent to the remodeled gymnasium/Health Sciences building.  This included reconfiguration of the northwest campus entrance drive and parking areas, a main campus west entry and drop-off, improved traffic and pedestrian circulation, upgraded site utilities and site lighting, building service delivery entrance, plazas, walkways, an outdoor amphitheater, and related landscaping improvements.
