University of Connecticut – Recreation Center

The University of Connecticut is planning the design and construction of a new 200,000-gross-square-foot Student Recreation Center to serve the general student population and respond to unmet needs of the UConn community for an exercise, fitness, wellness and recreation center. Langan provided grading, stormwater, and sanitary sewer design for the new facility. The site was held to tight site constraints due to its location in the center of campus, which led to phasing and pedestrian concerns, grading and stormwater design challenges, and existing and proposed utility conflicts. The project required detailed coordination with the project team from the demolition of the existing graduate dormitories through construction to meet UConn design guidelines and the school year schedule. The site was designed to meet LEED v4 Gold and SITES v2 Certification, both US Green Building Council building and site sustainability programs.
