Lower Columbia College’s new Fitness Center & Myklebust Gymnasium combines an innovative remodel of an aged 1960s concrete structure and a new fitness center.

To integrate the new structure within its urban-campus context, construction followed a path of high-density development where building forms maximized transparency and are sculpted to respect fire separation clearances.

Masonry products defined the fire separation and blended the 57-year-old structure with the new. The exposed steel products contrasted with the masonry exterior demonstrated the strength and beauty of the building.

Combining the new with the old, the 34,650-square-foot building utilizes extensive exterior brick and CMU, connecting this innovative building to the campus and the community.
