During the Christmas and New Year closure, MU Sport took the opportunity to upgrade Sport’s Fitness Facilities in addition to performing a thorough, periodic cleaning of all the MU Sport facilities. This annual work ensures that the sport precinct facilities are in top condition for 2017.
Facility upgrades include the long-requested installation of air conditioning in the Lazer room and MindBody Studio group fitness studios in the Sports Centre. This installation will be completed by the time the Group Fitness timetable returns to a full roster at the start of March.
In addition, The University continues to invest in sustainable energy practises with the installation of solar panels on the Sports Centre. Benefits of the installation include an annual saving of 235 tonnes of carbon, data for University researchers, and a significant contribution towards achieving the University’s sustainability goals.
‘All upgrade works improve the quality and aesthetics of MU Sport facilities to enhance the user experience for all patrons’, said Facilities Coordinator Nicholas Pappas. ‘We aim to help our members reach their fitness goals, and to do that we strive to provide the highest quality equipment and facilities’.
Additional Sports Centre improvements include repainting of the Squash Courts and administration passageway, re-lacquering floors of the stadium and Lazer room group fitness studio. The Beaurepaire Centre upgrades saw repairs to the mens and womens change room tiling and new entrance paint.
