The University of Colorado opened the $61.4 million William J. Hybl Sports Medicine and Performance Center in August of 2020 in Colorado Springs. Designed by HOK and RTA Architects, the 104,600-sf facility integrates undergraduate and graduate education with clinical practice and research in a sports medicine and performance environment. Accommodating programs in exercise science, human anatomy, physiology, athletic training, and nutrition, the collaborative building houses centers of distinction in tactical and occupational performance; athletes and individuals with disabilities; and health and performance in extreme environments. The project was created in partnership with Centura Penrose-St. Francis Health Services, which will manage the 44,000-sf clinical component of the facility. Academic and research spaces include a 150-person lecture hall, four classrooms, nine instructional labs, and seven research labs. The Hybl Center also offers an altitude chamber, an environmental chamber, a biomechanics lab, a 60-meter sprint track, and a nutrition lab and kitchen. Targeting LEED Gold sustainable design certification, the project leverages advanced building systems to promote occupant wellness and optimize energy and water performance. J.E. Dunn Construction broke ground on the facility in October of 2018.
