Transcript The New Athletic Facility Opened Its Doors -unofficially The words "fully complete" was not applicable yet to the giant new $29.1 million athletic facility as the school year ended, which has the official street address of 3100 Cullen Blvd. However, progress was being made. Coaches and athletic staff moved in to the new facility the last two weeks of school. The new center hosted an "open house" for baseball recruits that Associate Athletic Director Bill McGillis said left a few eyes even more wide open. NCAA regulations forbade divulging the names of prospective recruits, but McGillis said they included "some of the better players in the greater Houston area." It was a huge morale-booster for staff and athletes," McGillis said on his way from the site Sunday. "I think it will pay great dividends for the alumni organization as well." McGillis said the general contractor would be working another three to four weeks to address "punch-list items," or minor repairs. The grand opening of the facility will not officially open until the Louisiana Tech football game on Sept. 9, 1995. "That weekend will be an important weekend for us," McGillis said. "1 Think that will generate more emotion about athletics than we've had around here in a long time." The 120-yard indoor football field was one thing that was not ready, however. The field will first be used May 20, when Reebok will sponsor a high school football combine. The track and practice courts, which can replace the retractable field, also won't be usable until the field is done. McGillis said the 16,500-foot weight room was "two-thirds complete." He added that the offices, locker rooms and meeting rooms were all functional. Believed to be the finest weight-training facility in the country, the strength and conditioning center includes new equipment ranging from Stairmaster, treadmills and Body Master weight machines. The weight-training area also comes complete with a sports medicine center, 24 treatment and taping tables, offices, examination rooms, rehabilitation equipment and a hydrotherapy center. Another area of the facility yet to have been completed is the Cougar Hall of Fame, located directly to the right of the building's entrance. This attraction will showcase some the greatest moments in Houston sports history with memorabilia and video footage. The Hall of Fame is scheduled to be finished later in the summer. The biggest area the facility has affected so far, though, has been the recruiting. "(The facility) definitely had a big impact on football recruiting, even though the building was nowhere complete," McGillis said. "Over the course of the spring, we brought in several athletes from al sports, and it had a big effect." The building is also expected to have an effect on the entire UH campus community. UH Athletic Director Bill Carr and his staff will have the building surveyed to determine ways to make it available for the non-athletic campus' use.
