Charlotte’s UREC Recognized as a 2021 Facility of Merit by Athletic Business

This past October, Athletic Business showcased the 2021 Facilities of Merit Awards winners. We are proud to share that University of North Carolina at Charlotte‘s University Recreation Center was recognized as one of AB’s Top Ten Facilities of Merit for 2021—recognizing the best, most innovative athletic, fitness and recreation facilities in North America from 60+ submissions that were featured in the June Architectural Showcase issue.

This was truly a remarkable collaboration with CannonDesign!

 

A dynamic hub for campus recreation, the University Recreation Center is UNC Charlotte’s first facility fully dedicated to campus recreation. The four-story facility triples the previous amount of available space and responds to growing student demand and enrollment by filling a significant void in UNC Charlotte’s student life experience with a wide variety of recreation offerings.

Phase XVI Residence Hall Begins Construction Next Week

The new five-story, 147,000 sq.ft. residence hall replaces Moore Hall—a high-rise tower that was previously demolished. The remaining high-rise tower (Sanford Hall) will remain in place. The new residence hall will complete the front quad, connecting Levine Hall, Housing and Residence Life Operations, and provide a direct pathway to South Village Dining Hall. The residence hall design includes traditional double rooms supported by communal bathrooms, study lounges, laundry rooms, multi-purpose rooms, and apartment suites for resident employees.

First Presbyterian Church, located in the heart of Uptown Charlotte, is deemed to be one of the oldest structures in the city. Originally built in 1857, the church was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1982.⁠⁠

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The renovation improvements of the project center around a new chancel and choir loft that is highlighted by a new pipe organ. The scope includes aesthetic, acoustic and functional updates to the Sanctuary and Chancel, Sacristy, Apse, Transept, Welcome Center, and Historic Lobby. It also includes the addition of a new ADA lift to the top choir platform, new sanctuary lighting, and restoration of the heart pine wood floors. While focusing on the new chancel and choir configuration, the redesign includes an improved existing pulpit, marble floors, white oak millwork, bronze railings, and a piano lift that can be utilized for the relocation of the chancel furnishings to create a venue for recitals, performances, and other events.

UNC Pembroke’s West Hall Transformation is Complete!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When given the chance, an old building can often surprise in its ability to take on a new use. This adaptive re-use project at UNC Pembroke is a great example of transformation. Originally designed as a residence hall in 1965, West Hall now houses the IT Innovation Center for students and faculty. The team was excited to work with UNC Pembroke to breath new life into the structure, and provide the campus a building they can use for many years to come.
