Women’s Locker Room Reinvention — Phase One: COMPLETE!
If you’ve spent time in our athletic facilities recently, you’ve likely noticed significant changes in our women’s locker room. We’re very excited to share the completion of Phase One of the locker room reinvention. Some of the new showers are now open!
While it sounds simple, Phase One has actually been a complex and carefully planned process. We began construction by tearing down existing tile and walls and re-configuring them to re-build the steam room, allow more space, as well as added 3 showers and all new lighting and plumbing fixtures. Each new shower has 150 cuts of upgraded tile, so the work has required a high amount of precision and careful placement.
Moving forward into the next three phases, we will be re-tiling the other eight showers (expanding the number of showers from 8 to 11), installing all new plumbing, new tile floor in the shower area, entrance to the wet area and sauna, plus the floors in the grooming and toilet areas.
Work will continue into the summer & early fall, with each phase involving some sort of temporary barricade. Work will take place daily/nightly. Currently, we have “transitional” floor tile that is temporary while the work is completed. Eventually when the permanent floor tile is laid , this may have to be done all at once, and it may be necessary for us to close parts of the locker room for a few days. Of course, we will keep you updated of any schedule changes as we learn them.
If you’re curious to see what the finished product will look like, stop down to the Athletic Level and take a look at the plans on the board outside of the women’s locker room. With the beautiful high-end finishes, we think you’ll like the upgrades.
We can’t wait to share the locker room reinvention with you as it moves closer to completion. Stay tuned for more updates and photos to come this summer!
