Golden Gophers get a new rowing facility

December 01, 2007 |

Set on the banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the new 17,500-sf training facility for the University of Minnesota varsity women's rowing team features state-of-the-art indoor training facilities, three boat storage bays, a boat repair bay, locker rooms, laundry rooms, and coaches offices. The storage bays for the 70-foot-long boats are on the ground level, which is sturdily constructed of concrete block. On the upper level, clad in clear-cedar lap siding, the structure houses two spacious training areas: the “erg room,” with freestanding rowing machines on which team members practice and engage in endurance training; and the “tank room,” where they pull oars against real moving water during inclement weather and the winter months (pictured). Minneapolis-based HGA Architects and Engineers designed the facility.
