Hangar takes health and fitness to new heights

September 2013

On September 17, 2013, the $4.1-million Hangar Fitness & Wellness Centre officially opened. Funded by a $3.5-million donation from Barry Lapointe, the Hangar is an 850-square-metre addition to the gymnasium that houses a cardio-exercise and strength-training space, spin bikes and studios for yoga, combat sports, Pilates and dancing. The Hangar is an architectural work of art that showcases the wonders of building with wood and provides an environment wellness for students, faculty and staff.
