Groundbreaking kicks off Kiernan Center project at Niagara University

On July 13, LeChase helped kick off an $11.5 million renovation project at Niagara University’s Kiernan Recreation Center. LeChase is general contractor for the renovations, which will begin later this month.

“We applaud Niagara University on their commitment to students, faculty and community,” said LeChase CEO and Managing Partner Bill Goodrich, who took part in the groundbreaking ceremony.  “The Kiernan Center will provide enhanced space for campus gatherings and recreation, and will also serve the surrounding community as a space for athletic and special events. LeChase is proud to play a role in this milestone project, and we look forward to building a long-term partnership with Niagara University.”

The project will include an 18,000-SF, two-story addition to house a new weight room, sports medicine suite, dance studios, storage, locker rooms, meeting space and recreation offices. The scope also includes a number of improvements and infrastructure enhancements to the existing facility. All work should be complete in time for the fall 2022 semester.
