The 1st Choice Savings Centre for Sport & Wellness is an expansion and redevelopment of the existing Physical Education and Student Union Building at the University of Lethbridge. Located in the west parking lot at the campus entrance, the facility provides a new front door enabling direct access and joint use by the University constituency and the citizens of Lethbridge. A total of 215 car stalls were removed and approximately 6600m2 of asphalt sent for recycle to make way for the building. The facility consists of a new, below grade, day lighted triple gymnasium and an elevated 200 metre running track (for special events, the track serves as a spectator concourse featuring top-loading retractable seating for 2,000); fitness centre, multi-purpose rooms, climbing wall, kinesiology teaching labs, classrooms and an expanded locker facility. The gymnasium and track complex is new construction while the remainder of the work is carved out of the existing building.
