Drew Wellness Center | Columbia, SC

The City of Columbia chose The Boudreaux Group to design a new state-of-the-art wellness facility that would be available for use by all the citizens of the city. Located near the intersection of Harden Street and Calhoun Street, the Charles R. Drew Wellness Center is 40,000 square feet in area and includes a Natatorium that features a pool combining eight lanes of 25-Meter lap swimming. Sloping glazed curtain walls open the Natatorium to views from Harden Street. Opposite the Natatorium is a gymnasium that provides space for basketball and volleyball events. The Mezzanine level features a jogging track that runs along the perimeter of the gym and is open to the gym space below. Joggers can also overlook the Natatorium as they run by the glass wall that separates the mezzanine and Natatorium. A cardio and free weight area is also located on the Mezzanine level with space for many types of cardio-vascular workout equipment.
