Addressing campus needs for a robust recreation program

University of Wisconsin-Platteville Williams Fieldhouse Addition

Location
Platteville, Wisconsin

Kahler Slater is currently teaming with UW-Platteville to design an addition to the existing Williams Fieldhouse. The 55,000 SF addition will help the campus address overall space needs deficiencies related to wellness, fitness and recreation due to an increase in enrollment at the University.  The updated fieldhouse will provide the latest trends in recreation design to meet the needs of the growing student body, faculty and staff, and the community.

The addition will support student club sports, intramural sports, open recreation, varsity sports, and the Physical Education Department. The design includes spaces for: multi-purpose playing courts and related support spaces, including lockers and other storage, showers, and restrooms; Wellness Center areas, and equipment including cardiovascular, weight machines, free weights, and an exercise studio; an athletic training suite; and recreation offices. Multi-use synthetic turf athletic outdoor fields support the new recreational field complex for intramural sports programs.
