FAU Schmidt Complex for Academic & Athletic Excellence Groundbreaking Renderings
Phase 1: 90% complete. Hydrotherapy tanks to be finished in Nov.
Phase 2: Underway. 80% of foundation complete
faufan2017 saidInteresting details from the FAU Facilities website. They have the Schmidt Athletics Complex now listed as a 72 Million project with 57 Million construction. The budget seems to keep going up here so I'm wondering if we're finding new funding sources or if the project is getting to be more expensive than initially planned.
Yeah the different components of the facility are expanding and thus funding is coming from a lot of sources.
Altogether it's something like:
1.4M from Business Services
4M from Student Health
21M from College of Business
29M from FAU Foundation
15M from Auxiliary
Going to be a busy building!
And very interesting that the College of Business is so involved in the project now, does this mean they are able to use State funding at least in part to help fund the academic side of the project? I knew they were going to have some involvement with the academics (Sports Management), as was Health Care (Nursing, Sports Medicine).
