The sports medicine room on the lower floor of Taper Gymnasium will be completely redesigned during summer break. Construction on the project will start in early 2014, Head of Campus Operations J.D. De Matte said.

The room, now about 400 square feet, will be expanded to 2,000 square feet. For the sports medicine room to expand and accommodate new high-end equipment, both the boys’ and girls’ locker rooms will be redesigned.

The construction may also include adding air conditioning equipment to the top-floor of Taper gym, and will cost roughly $2 to $3 million dollars, De Matte said.
