The expansion and renovation of Iowa State University’s State Gym provides a comprehensive recreational facility on the west side of campus complementing the choice of recreational activities currently available at the Lied Recreation and Athletic Complex on the east side of campus. This project also links Beyer Hall with the expanded State Gym providing additional facilities and increased activity choices without the need to build all new facilities. In addition, this linkage and reuse of State Gym provides a positive identity and gives new life to the historical campus icon that State Gym represents.
