Contruction crews have begun work on the University of North Dakota High Performance Center over the last few weeks, preparing the footings for the building that will be a game-changer for UND athletics.

Early work has focused on the ground, digging down 10 feet to prepare for the 100-yard artificial turf and 8-lane, 300-meter track. In the coming weeks, steel framing and cranes will move into the area to construct the building.

Last fall the old Ralph Engelstad Arena was torn down to make way for the building that will be used by every athletics program on campus.

Donate to phase two of the project, which will house academic, sports medicine and additional areas by giving online or contacting Steve Brekkeat steveb@undfoundation.org or 701.777.6426.
