PAW Center at Penn State DuBois

PAW Center at Penn State DuBois Transformed Into A State-of-the-Art Facility

Barton Education provided MEP design services for a 44,000 square-foot renovation and 6,000 square feet addition to transform the Multipurpose Building into a state-of-the-art facility to create the Physical Fitness, Athletics and Wellness (PAW) Center for Penn State DuBois.

Originally constructed in 1966, the building formerly housed the Wildlife Technology program in addition to athletics and fitness-related spaces.

The project included renovations to the gymnasium and fitness center and offices for athletics staff. The existing building was completely renovated in regard to the MEP infrastructure. New heating and air conditioning systems were designed to replace the aging building infrastructure that did not include air conditioning.  New power, data, and telecommunication systems were provided to provide state of the art services for the campus community.  Plumbing infrastructure was upgraded to meet the expanded program needs.

The University earned LEED certification from the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for this project.
