West Virginia University – Milan Puskar Center Football Training Facility – Spas

Morgantown, WV

The University of West Virginia approved a $100 million facilities master plan for an athletic improvements campaign called ‘Climbing Higher’. The plan includes $55 million to be spent on the Puskar Center complex, $35 million on the Coliseum complex, $5 million on the Cary Gym complex, and $5 million on a new golf complex at the former White Day golf course outside of the city.

Counsilman-Hunsaker was retained to design the spas for the new hydrotherapy room at the football training facility located in the Milan Puskar Center. The $4.7 million project consisted of renovating the existing 4,450 sq. ft. training room and the 4,150 sq. ft. shell beneath the auditorium to provide an 8,600 sq. ft. training facility within the existing lower level of the Milan Puskar Center.

The new hydrotherapy room will be one of the finest in the Big 12 Conference with two 27 ft. walkthrough tanks and a spa pool that seats 10. Beyond the custom tiled pools is a branded 30’ waterfall feature. Dramatic color-changing LED underwater accent lighting allow the trainers to set up the room for recruits in the school colors with user-interfacing controls. The room also has light level settings for training and everyday use. Aquatic amenities include:

135 sq. ft. Cold Plunge Recovery Pool

  • Two stair entries
  • Underwater bench
  • Underwater color-changing LED lights

161 sq. ft. Variable Plunge Pool

  • Two stair entries
  • Water temperature variable to +/- 10° F
  • Hydrotherapy bench
  • Stone water wall with underwater color changing LEDs and branding

100 sq. ft. Hot Spa

  • Stair entry
  • Hydrotherapy bench with jets
  • Underwater color-changing LED lights

Renovations also included the addition of two 400 sq. ft. pool equipment rooms, treatment area, taping station, expanded rehab area, renovated swim-ex therapy pool, expanded office space for trainers & doctors, and all new walls in the training facility.
