On April 10, 2017, Mortenson broke ground on the renovation and expansion of Harper College’s sports and wellness center. With an aim to build community ties, the renovated facility will be a state-of-the-art health and recreation center not only for the college, but for the city of Palatine and surrounding suburbs. Building M is currently home to the school’s athletics and kinesiology and health education departments as well as a pool, fitness center, and gym. In addition to a total renovation and upgrading of these current departments, team training facilities, and fitness and public spaces, Mortenson is adding a new sports medicine area, exercise rooms, and six classrooms to the existing two-story, 130,000 square foot building. The project also includes constructing a 10,000 square foot addition planned to house a medical clinic run by Northwest Community Healthcare.
