With construction of the Washington-Grizzly Champions Center taking shape near the southeast corner of the football stadium on the University of Montana's campus, UM Athletic Director Kent Haslam gave Griz fans an inside look at the soon-to-be completed facility via the department's Twitter account Monday.
The Champions Center, a $14 million project entirely funded by private donations, will provide Montana's athletic programs with expanded meeting areas and weight rooms when it opens this fall.
"We're on time and on budget, still scheduled for a September of 2017 opening," Haslam said during his Twitter tour.
There will be five meeting rooms for all teams to use, Haslam said, along with a two-level 17,000-square-foot weight room. The remainder of the building will house a 71,000-square-foot football locker room and players' lounge.
The facility will act as a border of the walking concourse at Washington-Grizzly Stadium and feature new restrooms and concession stands for the gameday experience. The construction will also rework the southern entrance to the stadium behind the south end zone where a new entry plaza will go up.
Take a look at the construction so far below.
