Brock to more than triple square footage of fitness complex

August 2, 2019

Brock University has begun a year-long construction project on its Zone fitness centre. The project will see the Zone transformed from a 4,300 square-foot space into a state-of-the-art, two-level, 15,500-square-foot complex. The project was financed by student fees and approved in 2018 through a Brock University Students’ Union referendum. “Safety is our first priority,” said Brock Capital Planning and Project Management Director Paul Smeltzer, who explained that the construction will be taking place within a courtyard with no access to outside roadways. “We need to be strategic about how we get equipment and material into that area. It’s not as simple as just lifting everything over top of existing hallways and buildings and into the courtyard.” Brock (ON)
