HNTB, in collaboration with WTW Architects, is currently working with the University of Pittsburgh on a series of state-of-the-art athletics projects that will provide Pitt student-athletes with national-caliber competition, training, sports performance, and medicine facilities.

The initiative is part of the University’s campus master plan, which was finished in 2018 after two years of engagement and input from faculty, students and staff, along with community members. The plan is designed to advance Pitt’s aspirations on many fronts, enrich the student experience and to create a more connected, outward-looking and engaged university.

New facilities to be built in the coming years include:

  • A 3,500-seat arena for gymnastics, volleyball and wrestling.
  • An eight-lane, 300-meter indoor track for the men’s and women’s programs.
  • A cutting-edge athletic performance center that will serve the strength and conditioning, sports medicine, nutrition and mental well-being needs for 16 of Pitt’s 19 intercollegiate athletics programs.
