Arizona State University Polytechnic Campus

Mesa, AZ

ASU Polytechnic CampusIn January 2013, Arizona State University celebrated the grand opening of its long-awaited Sun Devil Fitness Complex on its Polytechnic Campus in Mesa, Arizona. The $19 million, 62,000 sq. ft. recreation facility was designed by Architekton and 360 Architecture along with the aquatics expertise of Counsilman-Hunsaker.

The facility houses an outdoor state-of-the-art swimming pool for fitness lap swimming, recreation and relaxation. Other amenities include a weight and fitness area, various courts for basketball, volleyball, tennis, racquetball and sand volleyball, soccer and softball fields as well as group fitness classrooms.

Students on the Polytechnic campus played a significant role in the design of the facility, creating a space that not only promotes health and wellness, but also fosters a greater sense of community. This hands-on approach is representative of the project-based learning that students at Polytechnic experience inside the classroom.

Aquatic amenities include:

4,800sq. ft. Outdoor Recreation Pool

  • Six  25-yard fitness lap lanes
  • Grand stair entry
  • Raised hydrotherapy bench area
  • Vanishing edge water feature
  • Underwater bench seating
  • Water polo practice court
  • Water basketball
  • Water volleyball

The goal of this facility is to receive a Silver level accreditation from the U.S. Green Building Council for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design for its efforts in sustainable green design.
