The $5 million Ruth Scott Training Center is the latest addition to Creighton University’s east campus athletic corridor. The 16,000 square foot building will serve as the new training home for Creighton University’s volleyball and women’s basketball teams. The facility provides space for two full-sized basketball and volleyball courts, six basketball hoops, two automated volleyball nets that lower from the ceiling, state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment to film and review practices, a hydration station and additional storage space. The new training center will help remedy logistical troubles scheduling games and practices between the volleyball and basketball teams.
The exterior façade of the building features architectural precast concrete insulated wall panels. The precast exterior was chosen based on cost savings and accelerated schedule capabilities that would allow fast track construction. The exterior of the building consists of thin brick and decorative acid etch buff accents. There are a number of distinct brick coursing patterns, projections, and radiused panels incorporated into the exterior while the interior was power troweled to be site painted.
Construction on the training center was completed in January 2019, with the facility dedicated on February 4, 2019. Because of precast concrete, Creighton University Athletics will have a beautiful yet functional facility which will make a major statement for years to come.
