The intent of this renovation is to configure and upgrade the existing training room and practice football locker room facilities in an effort to further MSU’s recruiting efforts. The spaces are designed to meet the needs, aspirations, and goals of current coaches, staff, and players, and resolve current circulation, spatial and amenity limitations.
The training room serves a variety of uses, including football taping, hydrotherapy, exercise space, therapy space, office space and exam space serving all student athletes. Many of these will be used in conjunction with one another, so physical and visual proximity is a must.
The football practice locker room accommodates 115 player lockers, 5 inactive player lockers and 120 clean laundry lockers, as well as a hydration station and central gathering area. The design emphasizes “the speed of the game,” through linear elements and a reinforcing of perspective. Each locker is fitted with graphic door panels, mechanical ventilation and a linear solid surface bench with an LED lit toe kick, adding further drama to the space.
