GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. Almost $20 million is being spent to reinforce a healthy lifestyle for Mavericks and to also engage students from different backgrounds.
The basement of the Maverick Center will be remodeled to house a larger strength and conditioning space.
Two floors will also be added in the Hamilton Recreation Center to give more room for group exercise classes and for student fitness.
The Maverick Pavilion has been a temporary area for different sports and it will be replaced by a nearly 50,000 square foot building connected by a bridge to the Rec Center. That bridge will allow for an extension of the indoor running track between the two buildings.
This project is also making space for four basketball courts, a climbing wall, cycling center, racquetball court and a golf simulator.
Officials expect the renovations to be complete by Fall of 2014.
