Progress Abounds at Rec Center

SOUTH ORANGE, N.J. – The early weeks of the new year have brought new developments to the Richie Regan Athletic Center as construction continues on the multi-million dollar renovation project.

Progress outside the building is distinctly perceptible as extensive excavation has taken place and with the university recently receiving permission to remove ground water in the area, the foundation of a planned extension is set to be laid in the near future.

The new scoreboard will also feature Seton Hall
specific branding and is currently in assemb
ly at
the manufacturer in San Francisco, Calif.
Inside, the building is dotted with signs of development as the new Fitness Center is steadily forming. On the lower level, the revamped Varsity Training Room is taking shape and is scheduled to be ready for use prior to the end of the spring season. Framing of the offices in the training room nears completion as work persists in conjunction with the formation of new dedicated areas for treatment and rehabilitation. Recently, the tarp was removed from the roof of the expanded facility, revealing a newly installed glass ceiling.

Also under construction is the new scoreboard set to grace Owen T. Carroll Field for the 2013 baseball season. The new board which will include a 10’x16’ LED video screen, will  also be equipped to help enhance broadcasts on the Pirate Sports Network.

Ground broke on the multidimensional project earlier this fall and will yield a modernized facility replete with upgrades in a variety of areas that will undoubtedly add to an already vibrant community on Seton Hall’s South Orange campus.
