Gannon University | Carneval Student Recreation Center
Erie, Pennsylvania

The Carneval Student Recreation Center at Gannon University in Erie, Pennsylvania is a renovation and addition to the existing, out-dated recreation. The building features a 12,000-square-foot addition with a glass front facing West Fourth Street. The other component of the addition is a new 51,950-square-foot indoor field house to the west of the Rec Center on the West Third Street side, on what is now the intramural field. The field house will feature an 80-yard indoor field house which will allow for year-round practice and increased intramural and club sports programs. The space can be subdivided into three separate areas so that multiple activities can take place at once. .

The existing facility received a complete interior renovation that includes new locker rooms, and areas for wrestling and a new acrobatics and tumbling program. A new Human Performance Center that will house a motion analysis lab and a human performance and testing lab and serve as a space for collaboration between faculty and students in the physical therapy, sport and exercise science, human performance, occupational therapy, and biomedical engineering programs.

Design and construction were completed in less than two years.
