project at a glance

The 82,500 square foot, three-story addition to the Daskalakis Athletic Center at Drexel University accommodates recreation, intramural, and club sports.

The facility includes a 13,000 square foot, two-court multi-purpose gym, a 1/10 mile suspended walking/jogging track, 18,000 square feet for weights and fitness equipment, a 30-foot climbing wall, two 1,500 square foot exercise rooms, a 1,700 square foot administrative suite with four offices, a conference room and a kitchenette, locker, storage, and equipment rooms, and 6,000 square feet of commercial shell space on the lower level along Market Street.  Two squash courts and a seating area for viewing were also incorporated.

Mid-way through construction Drexel University held its summertime commencement and required a path through the project site to the original sports facility where the ceremony was held.  Turner worked with the University to build a temporary paved and covered road across the north end of the site to provide students a safe route into the facility.

Self-assessment by the project team currently places the Recreation Center at achieving 3 Green Globes, the international equivalent of LEED Certification.
