Recognizing sports and fitness are important to the campus community, Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) wanted to update its current facilities by constructing a new sports and recreation center. The facility includes a precast concrete natatorium structure housing a 25 m competition swimming pool with spectator seating and a gymnasium above it. SGH was the precast specialty engineer for the natatorium.
