Villanova University - Davis Center & Pavilion
Davis Center & Pavilion
55,000 Sq. Ft.
MEP / FP Design
Wick Fisher White provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire protection design and construction administration services for the new 3-story, 55,000 sf Davis Center for Athletics and Fitness on the Villanova University campus. The Davis Center is located next to the Pavilion and is the main practice facility for both the men’s and women’s basketball teams. The facility contains two practice courts, locker rooms, a weight room, a cinema and the offices for the coaches and support staff. A new fitness center for the general student population is located on the third floor above the men’s practice court. During the construction of the Davis Center, Villanova decided to simultaneously upgrade the heating and cooling systems at the adjacent Pavilion. Due to the proximity of the two buildings, it was decided to design new central heating and cooling systems to service both buildings. The design concept included provisions to allow the existing Pavilion to continue operation during the installation of these systems.
