Purdue's $65 million Football Performance Complex is under development
A $65 million football project is coming together at Purdue University. According to purduesports.com, “The latest work on the construction of the Football Performance Complex is foundation development, from the northwest to the east and south. Specifically, some 4,240 cubic yards of cast-in-place concrete will be poured for the 110,000-square foot facility.
“Since work began, 23,375 cubic yards of mass excavation has occurred, and 401 aggregate piers and 92 augercast piles have been installed to support the foundation. All underground piping has been laid, including 2,697 feet of storm piping and 1,569 feet of water lines.”
The Football Performance Complex will be a three-level structure with a locker room, team meeting room, position group meeting rooms, player development room, weight room, sports medicine facility, nutrition station and coaches’ offices, as well as a grand entrance lobby.
It is said in the article that no student fees or state support will be used for the project, as future media rights distributions are being targeted to pay the annual debt service. Purdue Athletics is entirely self-supporting.
