Fairfield University

Leslie C. Quick, Jr. Recreation Complex (RecPLex)


The existing Leslie C. Quick, Jr. Recreation Complex was in need of renovations, as well as an addition to accommodate the needs of the Fairfield University community. To this end, Kohler Ronan joined the project team and provided comprehensive Mechanical, Electrical, Plumbing, Fire Protection, IT and Security services in support of the architectural plans for the facility.

Project scope included a new elevated jogging track for the gymnasium, completely renovated locker rooms, and a 3-story, 2,800-sf addition housing a brand new, state-of-the-art fitness center.

Kohler Ronan was also engaged to conduct whole building energy simulations to determine incentives for United Illuminating’s Energy Conscious Blueprint-Whole Building Performance Initiative Program. Models were created in two phases: pre- and post-construction.

The newly renovated facility will allow for increased use and enjoyment by all on campus.
