Sundt has completed the $28.6 million Coyote Center at Chandler-Gilbert Community College, Pecos Campus in Chandler, Arizona. The 74,859-square-foot community college construction project is among only a few in the nation to blend athletics and academics with enrollment and student services. Touted as a “one-stop” student services area, the Coyote Center includes a 2,500-seat arena surrounding a 10,000-square-foot gymnasium, a fitness center, athletic offices and locker rooms, classrooms and testing facilities, administration offices and conference rooms.
Designed by Dick & Fritsche Design Group and Opsis Architecture to enhance the student experience, the Coyote Center is expected to earn LEED Gold certification from the U.S. Green Building Council. Its sustainable features include a solar water-heating system, water-efficient fixtures, LED lighting technology, white roofing materials, and a sophisticated climate and lighting control system.
