Witter Physical Education & Instructional Complex @ Santa Fe Community College | Santa Fe, NM
Construction of this new 120,000 square foot physical fitness center was completed in 1994.
A sky-lighted, two-story entry atrium with a check-in desk and sports shop greets visitors as they enter. First floor facilities include an indoor swimming pool, locker rooms, a weight training room, aerobics studios, a clinic, and offices.
The gymnasium was designed to accommodate 3 full-court basketball games simultaneously, as well as provide space for indoor tennis, volleyball, and badminton. Curtain “walls” allow for flexible partitioning of the space. The inclusion of a sound system and acoustical paneling allow the gym to be used for graduation ceremonies and community functions. Bleachers with built-in chair backs seat approximately 1,000 spectators.
On the second floor, an indoor running track encircles the gym. That level also houses an observation deck for the indoor pool, administrative offices, and storage.
Outdoor facilities include a football/soccer field encompassed by a 400-meter, all-weather running track, a softball diamond and four all-weather tennis courts. All athletic fields are irrigated with water reclaimed from the campus sewage treatment facility, the roof drain system, parking lots and surrounding areas.
