In an effort to unite their student body with health and wellness, Carnegie Mellon University is preserving the existing Skibo Gymnasium and building a new Health, Wellness, and Athletics Center in partnership with Highmark. Spanning 158,000GSF, the Center will service athletics and house office & clinical space for Counseling and Psychological Services and University Health Services.
With dedicated locker rooms for each sport, the rooms will feature several displays throughout the room for game review and personalization. Athletes can connect their cell phones via bluetooth through integrated audio systems allowing them to stream music through pendant ceiling speakers.
Two B-Court gymnasiums will accompany the existing multi-purpose Skibo gymnasium. Ceiling-mounted speakers adorn all gymnasiums and also have the capability for Bluetooth connection. Wireless microphones and stationary cameras ensure events run to their fullest extent and provide teams with post-game insights.
The Highmark Health and Wellness Center also services wellness and mindfulness programming, religious and spiritual life activities, and health services. With separate waiting rooms for sick and healthy patients, the health services center is able to provide healthcare to students campus wide safely. Containing exam rooms and allergy and lab services, this space ensures students receive the best care possible. A mindfulness and yoga room accompany prayer rooms and meditation nooks.
