Designing University of Houston Athletics for the Next Century

Page is proud to be designing another sports facility for the University of Houston. Their new TDECU Stadium just opened with the first home football game of the season on August 29 and today, the university's Athletics Department announced that Page and DLR Group, who also collaborated on the stadium, designed the soon-to-be-built basketball practice facility.

This is a step in the university's commitment to improving all the facilities in its sports programs. By providing a dedicated training space and the comforts of new team and academic rooms, the Houston Men's and Women's Basketball student-athletes will continue to develop into outstanding competitors on the court and outstanding leaders in the classroom.

The 53,000 square-foot facility will provide the environment that the Houston Men's and Women's Basketball student-athletes need to excel throughout the season in all areas. The first level will house a dedicated practice court for each team as well as sports performance and sports medicine areas, which will be used by both programs.

The second level will feature the teams' areas, which include locker rooms and academic/film theaters. The team rooms contain spacious, modern lockers, multiple video screens for television and comfortable furniture. The third level will hold office space for both Men's and Women's Basketball coaching and support staffs.

Judging by the reaction in local, business and sports media, the response is very positive. To see the original announcement made by the University of Houston Athletics Department, click here
