Physical Education Center

Rockford, IL

This $13 million project completely renovated and updated the building’s 40 year old infrastructure, athletic facilities and classrooms.  Additions to the facility now house a new state-of-the-art Fitness lab and Dance Studio and new sunlit faculty offices.  All of these functions had formerly resided in windowless dark spaces in the lower level.  The renovations also included new hi-tech “Smart” classrooms and lecture spaces.  RVC’s Physical Education Center is not only the first LEED Gold Certified facility in Winnebago County, but the first Illinois Community College facility to achieve Gold Level Certification
