Arizona State University Fitness Complex for LEED Platinum


The new Arizona State University Sun Devil Fitness Complex has passed the Architecture 2030 Challenge for carbon reduction! This was a combined effort of Studio MA and Sasaki with the help of CTDG. Its design was based on the desert which included a rain screen, rooftop solar thermal system and deep overhangs and louvers. All of this has led to a 70% decrease in energy use.


In the midst of a severe national economic
recession, Arizona State University students voted
to increase student recreation fees in order to fund
design and construction of an expanded and
renovated Student Recreation Complex. Extensively
involved in the pre-programming of the facility,
students looked to consolidate the various locations
throughout the community where intramural sports
had been relocated. The new facility will include
new competition fields, a large gym with multiple
courts, in addition to strength /cardio, multipurpose
and student health/wellness spaces.
Convergent Technologies’ scope for this project
includes complete design services for audiovisual
presentation systems and telecommunications
cabling systems design. Additionally, acoustical
analysis for interior room finish recommendations
was provided for all high-bay gymnasium spaces
along with the design of sound isolating partitions
between the existing Small Gymnasium and
adjacent office spaces. This project was completed
in 2013.
