Sheridan Construction was hired to renovate the long-vacated pool space in the Georgia Southern University Hanner Fieldhouse into a new state-of-the-art Kinesiology Research Lab designed to help athletes, first responders, and people with disabilities avoid injuries, strengthen performance and improve their quality of life. Approximately 11,000 SF of space was renovated and life safety issues addressed throughout the complex. The renovated space includes four labs: two biomechanics labs with one-of-a-kind recessed floor plates; a motor control lab; and a human performance lab with recessed treadmills. Each lab provides space for students and interns to have the opportunity to conduct ongoing research. In addition to the research labs, scope of work included new offices, breakrooms, restrooms, and storage space.
