As Sanford Health’s flagship Power Center, the Sanford Fieldhouse at the Sanford Sports Complex in Sioux Falls, SD is the heart of the healthcare giant’s wellness and power programs, whose goal is to make sports and fitness an integral part of staying healthy.
With 85,000 sf of indoor sports fields, tracks, batting cages, training areas, and on-site physical and occupational therapy suites, care was taken by Sanford and JLG to equip the facility with high performance design tools to match the athletes within. Energy efficient mechanical and electrical systems are expected to reduce costs and provide a higher quality indoor air, while translucent panels flood the space with natural light to limit the need for artificial illumination while cutting direct light, which can lead to increased cooling needs.
The Power Center in a part of the Sanford Sports Complex – which also includes the nearby Pentagon and Great Shots, both designed by JLG – and serves the region’s youth sports teams, adult recreational sports enthusiasts and professional athletes alike.
JLG was a part of a Design/Build team with Fiegen Construction on the Power Center. The Sanford Fieldhouse Power Center was designed and built through an integrated project delivery fast-track method and went from initial design meeting to project completion and owner occupancy in less than 7 months.
