South Dakota State Wellness Center Expansion Is Underway

HOK met with students and faculty to discuss phase II design of the Wellness Center at South Dakota State University in Brookings.

South Dakota State University“According to Jeff Huskey, the Wellness Center director, the expansion is in the programming phase. This phase involves student and faculty input about features they would like to see in the design, slowly narrowing it down.

“‘We are in the dreaming phase right now and the way it sits in the design is, it is everything that we want,’ said Caleb Finck, president of the Students’ Association. ‘If we wanted everything in the world, that’s what it would be.’

“The expansion will double the Wellness Center footprint with 63,000 square feet of fitness space, but 81,000 square feet of new space. It will expand to the north, taking about half of the green space that sits there.”

“Huskey has promised several features to students. Promised features include four basketball courts, double the size of the fitness floor, two racquetball courts, two new studios, an extended track and an outdoor pursuit center.”

HOK is collaborating on the design with Stone Group Architects out of Sioux Falls.
