Construction Underway on St. Edwards Athletic Center

St. Edwards University in Austin launched construction on a new athletic facility on its campus. The 12,400-square-foot building is expected to be completed in December 2019.

The new facility, designed by Specht Architects, focuses health and wellness, offering a fitness center, yoga studio and wellness/medication center. Furthermore, the space will be offered to the entire student body and faculty, as opposed to athletes only. Hill & Wilkinson Construction is the general contractor.

A portion of the building also extends out toward the heart of campus, and incorporates outdoor “stadium type” seating facing a new plaza where performance and presentations will take place. The plaza creates a new pedestrian-oriented active space where the parking lot once existed.

Specht Architects also designed Doyle Hall for St. Edward’s University, which garnered an AIA Design Award.
