Despite multiple heavy storms hitting the construction site, Ferris State’s new Center for Athletic
Performance has persevered and is still slated for winter 2022 completion.
According to Project Manager Kara Pellerito, the project is currently working on both Phase 1: the new volleyball arena addition, and Phase 2: the lower-level and strength and conditioning center renovation.
Phase 1 is scheduled to be completed by October 2022 while Phase 2 is slated for August 2022. Phase 3, the team room build-outs, will begin in August and are hoped to be completed by November. While there haven’t been any major delays, Pellerito attributed the challenges with deliveries.
“The biggest challenge the project has had is adjusting the construction schedule to accommodate
material and equipment lead times,” Pellerito said.
“This project impacts every student athlete at Ferris. The new strength and conditioning space is
providing a much needed larger area for student athletes to train and the new team rooms will providethe additional space teams need for regular meetings and game film review.”
