University of Saint Joseph – O’Connell Athletic Center
The University of Saint Joseph’s O'Connell Athletic Center is undergoing a complete renovation and 31,000 SF addition. When completed, the facility will contain two basketball courts, a training room, strength and conditioning room, expanded laundry and equipment room, new offices, and the student health services center. The expansion helps meet the needs of students either looking to continue their sports careers or pursue a degree in athletic training, sports management, physical education, or sports studies. Langan's site concept design includes boulevard seating and embraces a painted boulder as a focal point for student interaction. Adjacent to the hardscape primary plaza is a secondary "green plaza" for student events, which doubles as green infrastructure in the form of a below-grade stormwater recharge zone.
