Cregger Athletic Center at Roanoke College

This project involved the construction of a $40 million, 152,000sf athletic facility on the Roanoke College campus. The new facility was located over the footprint of the existing Bowman Hall and parking lot, which were razed as a part of this project. The new facility consisted of an office/locker room component, an arena, and a field house.
