College of Wooster’s State-of-the-Art Scot Center
About the Facility
In planning for many years, the College of Wooster dedicated its sparkling new Scot Center in January 2012. The innovative facility, which encompasses 123,000 square feet, will serve students as well as inter-collegiate athletes. The Scot Center’s main attraction is the fieldhouse which boasts a new state-of-the-art NCAA regulation 200-meter track. The College, after an exhaustive study, chose Kiefer and Mondo as its athletic surface provider for the new facility.
A unique feature of the new building is the 20,000 square-foot solar energy system, the largest of any college facility in the United States. These panels generate 271,000 kilowatt hours of electricity per year. The $30 million facility broke bround for construction in May of 2010. Bogner Construction Management Company was the builder of the new facility.
What the Customer Has to Say
Keith D. Beckett, Ph.D., Director of Physical Education, Athletics, and Recreation at the College of Wooster said, “we wanted the Scot Center to be impressive in appearance and innovative design as well as by what it delivers in technology and recreation, training, and competition space for our entire campus community now and going forward.” Beckett adds, “Our selection of Mondo SX by Kiefer helped contribute to this reality. We have found that the quality of Mondo’s products and Kiefer’s craftsmanship is unmatched in the sports industry.”
