Claremont McKenna College Athletic and Recreation Center

Claremont McKenna College Athletic and Recreation Center
Claremont McKenna Athletics recognized the need for a true performance arena and supporting facilities for its athletic teams.
"I just want to say that hiring your firm was probably one of the best moves we have made on the various building projects we have been involved in over the past few years. I was very skeptical about hiring a planning firm but went along with the program. You have turned me into a believer, at least for athletic and recreation centers. Thank you again."
-Frederick Weis,
Vice President and Treasurer, Claremont McKenna College (retired)

The College was in need of replacing its existing performance gymnasium with a true arena. A series of workshops and interviews with students, faculty and staff were conducted to quantify and prioritize both indoor and outdoor athletic and recreation requirements. Included in the master plan are new baseball and softball stadia, now completed tennis courts and a $23 million Athletic and Recreation Center, currently in its design phase.

SportsPLAN Studio also developed the design of the new Athletics and Recreation Center in association with NTD Architects.
