WSU Regents Move Forward On Construction Projects-Cougar Athletics New 27.5 Million Dollar Indoor Practice Facility Receives Final Approvals

The Washington State University Regents have given final approvals for Cougar Athletics new indoor practice facility.

The Taylor Sports Complex will replace the “bubble” which was built in 2002.  Donations to WSU Athletics will pay for the 27.5 million dollar facility.  Demolition of the bubble is expected to begin in a few weeks.  The new Taylor Sports Complex is expected to be complete in a year.  It will be used by all Cougar Athletics programs.

The regents on Friday also approved the budget for a 10 million dollar renovation of the Knott Dairy Center Southwest of Pullman.  The dairy has been operating since the early 1960’s and provides the milk for Cougar Gold cheese and Ferdinand’s ice cream.  Funds from the State of Washington will pay for the renovation.  Work is scheduled to begin in March and be completed in May of 2025.

The WSU Regents have also approved the 8 million dollar budget to renovate Bustad Hall.  The State of Washington is paying for the improvements to the College of Veterinary Medicine building.  Renovations are scheduled to begin in April and be completed in June of 2025.

The WSU Regents met Friday on the Pullman campus.
