The University of St. Joseph is on track to complete a $16.2 million expansion of its O’Connell Athletic Center by March, after recently completing steel installation for the upgraded facility.

The project, which is being headed up by Hartford’s JCJ Architecture Inc., will more than double the size of the West Hartford university's sports complex to nearly 57,000 square feet, according to USJ.

Construction includes a full renovation of the existing facility in addition to the 31,000-square-foot addition. 

When completed, the new facility will hold two basketball courts, a training room, strength and conditioning room, expanded laundry and equipment room, several new offices and the student health services center.
