University of Washington Tacoma YMCA

2014

The University of Washington Tacoma in partnership with the YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties constructed a new 3-story Student Recreation and Fitness Center on the UWT campus. With over 73,000 square feet of space, the amenities include a rock climbing wall, full-size gymnasium, weight and cardio equipment, NCAA regulation basketball and volleyball courts, a suspended indoor running track and fitness programs plus dedicated space for student programs, organizations and events.  By selecting concrete shear walls as the lateral system, PCS was able to provide increased column spacing, which leads to large unobstructed views.
