“ . . . Liked the problem solving aspect of the project . . . good relationship to the athletic field . . . impressed by what they had to do for construction . . .”
The Goldring Centre is a direct expression of the faculty’s goal: promoting accessible wellness and fitness for both the campus and city. The sports medicine clinic has independent access through a separate lobby, allowing it to serve members of the public and students. This new facility will allow the university to attract and retain high performance athletes. The Goldring Centre elevates athletic facilities within the campus imagination, and reflects the critical importance of fitness and wellness in campus life. Open to Varsity Field, it establishes a direct link between training and performance, preparation and success. The facility allows athletes, students, researchers and physicians to participate and learn from performance pursuits and research through an on-going feedback loop.
“The new centre has surpassed that which we thought would be possible. It is a building that will inspire students, athletes, coaches, trainers, faculty, staff and community members today and for years to come,” says Professor Ira Jacobs, Dean, Faculty of Kinesiology and Physical Education.
