The general contractor (Hilmarc's Construction Corp.) has started construction work for the new UST Gymnasium after foundation works were completed late last year. :banana:
This four-storey (roof-line elevation of 25.6 meters) mixed-use structure will house the offices and classrooms of the Institute of Physical Education & Athletics and of the facilities of the College of Rehabilitation Sciences on the first and second floors, food establishments and possibly a bank also at the first floor, the main basketball court convertible to a mixed-use venue at the second floor, an indoor track in the third floor and the bleachers at the fourth floor. There will be covered basketball courts around the gym, as well as additional parking spaces.
A model of the proposed structure is currently on display at the UST Main Bldg. Lobby. The new UST Sports Complex can accomodate 5,792 patrons (lower box seats, upper box seats & bleachers).
