Student Recreation Center Feasibility Analysis And Referendum Support

In 1999 California State University, Fullerton had grown to more than 25,000 students and shared a Physical Education Building with Academics and Athletics. The university asked B&D to provide consulting services for a proposed new recreation center on its main campus. Our services included a market analysis, interviews with building users, an outline of program needs, a projection of acceptable fee levels, a financial analysis, and assistance with a student referendum. The referendum passed overwhelmingly, and in July of 2006 the university broke ground on a new $40 million, 93,425 SF Student Recreation Center. In the following year, the Center was awarded “Best Overall Sustainable Design” as part of the 2007 Best Practice Awards for the University of California/California State University Energy Efficiency Partnership Program. In 2008 the Titan Student Recreation Center opened and became the first LEED Gold student recreation center in California.
