The vision for the Angela Athletic & Wellness Complex is to provide one location on campus where Saint Mary’s students can go to maintain a healthy lifestyle. The new complex will bring the Health and Counseling Center into the athletic complex. The office provides students with doctor’s clinics, allergy and flu shots, prescription distribution, counseling and other services. Meanwhile, the complex will boast improved and expanded court and field space as well as additional fitness space for cardio and weight training. The project added 61,000 sq. ft. to the floor plan, doubling the size of the previous facility, creating a total of 105,000 sq. ft. to support the needs of students and College’s eight Division III sports.

After acquiring many functioning facilities over the years in the Elkhart/Goshen area, the new Beamline Processing Facility was the first new construction project that the company has seen in the midwest in quite a while. Located on a ten-acre site within the Lippert Components manufacturing complex in Goshen, Indiana, the 107,000 square foot, multi-million dollar facility was created to enhance the manufacture of I-beams that form the framework of nearly every chassis it produces.

“This is a flexible production system that is able to take individual customer orders, match them to the specification required and produce the finished I-beam, ready to be built into a chassis,” explained Philip Wiltshire, Director of LCI’s Manufacturing Engineering.
