Interesting 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.

Phase 1: 90% complete. Hydrotherapy tanks to be finished in Nov.
Phase 2: Underway. 80% of foundation complete

Wow, $72M almost same as stadium! Again, as academics (some Business and Nursing) are also being housed in the center, are they getting any money from the state to help pay for that portion at least. That would sure help!

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!

So Diehard, if this gets approved does this mean the funding will all be in place by March for then entire complex?  

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).

Took a peek over the fence surrounding the site. A lot of concrete for the foundation has been poured and the entire first floor of the parking garage has been torn up. I'm guessing by the end of the end of the year the entire foundation will be completed and we will see some walls going up.

Nice, at least something good happening this year but like the team - far too little effort IMHO - very slow "progress"!

Part of it was money, part of it was that the design/function kept evolving.
