Construction continues on Sebo Center

Complete with weight rooms, sports medicine facilities, board rooms and therapy pools for athletes, the Sebo Center is moving along quickly.

Paint, dry walls and minor electrical details is all the new Sebo Center has to look forward to before the grand opening.

“It is going great, the windows are in and it’s really taking formation inside,” said Bob Sebo, a BG alumnus and Board of Trustees member, who was also the largest donor to the Sebo Center.

The original deadline for completion was set for February but due to a minor set back with the elevator shaft the new target date is set for April.

“The elevator has been rebuilt, it was just a minor setback we had,” Sebo said.

The third floor is painted and just needs minor electrical work, ceiling features and other details such as desks, chairs and computers, said Ben Spence, the operations manager.

The second floor is all dry walled and ready to be painted, he said.

“There have been no setbacks due to recent weather conditions because all the work is being done inside,” Spence said.

Before spring break they hope to have everything painted, all the dry walls put in and the electric done, he said.

“As far as I know everyone is really happy and all the financial aspects have been covered,” Sebo said.

There is still an intention to have a big celebration in September for the first home football game of the season, but the building itself should be finished in April, Sebo said.
