Virginia Tech – War Memorial Hall Feasibility Study
Virginia Tech - War Memorial Hall Feasibility Study
After Hughes Group Architects delivered a resoundingly successful recreation facility addition, Virginia Tech commissioned Hughes Group to prepare a feasibility study for the renovation and modernization of War Memorial Gym. The facility is at the heart of campus and the feasibility study revealed the potential for the existing facility to fulfill a new expanded role on campus. The proposed design proposes a new entrance portico to provide University Recreation a new central entry location for greater control and higher visibility. Thoughtful repurposing and reorganization of existing spaces such as racquetball courts and gymnastics spaces yield new fitness areas, weight training areas, and a climbing wall all within the footprint of the existing building. The proposed design realizes the potential of existing facility with minimal fiscal and planning impacts to the University.
