Anoka Ramsey Community College | Health and Wellness Center

Coon Rapids, MN

With the increasing demand for fitness and health facilities to offer today’s students and athletes, ARCC has built an addition and major modification to the campus athletic facilities. The addition accommodates 49,000 SF of new construction that has been carefully wrapped around the existing facility. This concept allowed the existing facility to remain completely operable during the construction of the new facility.

Upon completion of the new addition, the existing 22,000 SF locker and gym areas were reorganized and renovated. In total, the 71,000 SF facility has become a state of the art athletic and recreational complex focused on health and life long wellness. It is immensely popular with students, faculty and staff.

The project features 2 new competition courts for basketball adding to the 1 existing court. An indoor walking track, complete new weight and cardio exercise areas, new athletic department offices are all part of the project. The exterior massing carefully steps to integrate old and new parts of the campus, minimizing the scale of the new field house proportions.
