Ryan & Associates was selected by St. Ambrose University to complete this project as a design build teammate after being their preferred plumbing and mechanical contractor for many years. This project, which was the university’s largest capital project to be built, included key building features such as a 56,000 sq. ft. fieldhouse and a 200-meter competition grade track, with a total space of 97,000 sq. ft.


The mechanical systems for this facility consisted of five rooftop units to serve the gym and weight room, and one make-up air unit. The office and classrooms spaces were handled with heat pumps that utilized a cooling tower & boiler for the loop water system. Plumbing systems included sanitary and water systems for all locker, shower, and restroom areas.
