A key component to the success of student-athletes is the availability of modern on-campus athletic facilities. Kahler Slater partnered with Carroll University for the renovation of the Van Male Fieldhouse. Part of the original 1968 structure, the new locker rooms are designed for function and efficiency. An innovative flexible design approach allows the new locker rooms to meet the changing needs of teams. The design allows the individual varsity and general locker rooms to be combined when larger teams are in need of space and the rooms can also be separated when in use by smaller teams and the general student body. In addition to the locker rooms, the renovation also includes a new athletic training room with hydrotherapy area and new athletic department offices.
