Niagara University – Kiernan Athletic Center Renovation

Niagara University Wins Big With Modernized Athletic Center

The LaBella team partnered with CHA companies to design and provide construction administration for an addition and renovation to Niagara University’s dated Kiernan Athletic Center.

The athletic center serves the campus’ athletic teams, intramural sports, and student body’s fitness needs. The 18,000 sq. ft. addition includes a weight room, a spinning studio, and a multi-purpose dance studio, as well as recreation administration and sports medicine offices.

Substantial renovations to the administrative wing reconfigured the space to better suit the needs of the growing university. Additionally, expanding the lobby and cosmetic repairs to the existing space  provided opportunities for rebranding and modernization. The scope of work also included finish upgrades to two existing gymnasiums and a new pool filtration.
