Rockford University will hold a groundbreaking celebration to mark the official start of construction on the 3,800 square foot addition to the Seaver Physical Education Center on Wednesday, November 6, 2019, at 11 a.m. Designed by local architecture firm Larson & Darby Group, this expansion will be an essential venue for student learning and physical activity. The University has contracted with Rockford-based construction company Scandroli Construction Co. The project is expected to be completed by the start of the 2020 academic year.
This $3.5 million project, funded by the Rock Solid and Ready Campaign, will include an enhanced weight and fitness space and will add more classroom space for the rapidly growing physical education and exercise science programs. Also included in the renovation and addition is a redesigned heating and cooling system that will provide for the entire building to be fully air-conditioned along with a more energy-efficient heating system.
Refreshments will be served following the groundbreaking in the Seaver Center lobby. Rockford University is located at 5050 East State Street, Rockford.
