Installed: 7400 sq ft of Aktiv Pro, 12 Perform X Wood Platforms, 9mm Taraflex

The University of South Dakota had a vision to create a facility for their elite athletes. This project was part of the $66m Sports Performance Complex addition to the Dakota Dome. The Coyotes staff turned to SPEC Athletics to provide them with the very best in gym flooring for their fitness center.  The 7400 square foot facility received an AktivPro 1” thick rubber flooring in Thunder Gray.  SPEC also installed 12 Perform X wood platforms. SPEC worked closely with Sorinex the equipment supplier on the layout.  SPEC installed a custom inlaid University of South Dakota logo in the Nutrition Bar. SPEC worked with Jevon Bowman, the head strength coach, for 18 months on this product selection. SPEC Athletic also installed a 9mm Taraflex Black floor in the Sports Lab.  Taraflex is the same floor that are installed for the volleyball and handball courts at the 2016 Rio Olympics.
