The 78,000 SF Coyote Center creates an iconic landmark gateway to the Chandler-Gilbert CC campus, bringing together athletics, academic wellness departments, and enrollment services into a comprehensive facility.
Integrated into the desert environment, the new facility uses earthworks, courtyards, shade terraces and sunscreens to create an energy-efficient, high performance design. The multi-purpose gym design includes bleacher seating for 1,000 people to attend various basketball and volleyball games, as well as campus and community events. The facility includes a Sports Performance Center for strength and conditioning classes and a Human Performance Lab for exercise science and strength nutrition with specialized equipment for metabolism testing. Other program spaces include multi-purpose rooms, team locker rooms for individual men's and women's gym and field sports, training room, equipment room and faculty and coaches offices.
