Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center
As the first building to open in the Milwaukee Bucks downtown arena district, the Froedtert & the Medical College of Wisconsin Sports Science Center, Milwaukee Bucks new Training Center, provides world-class player and coach amenities. The 77,500-square-foot facility, that opened in August 2017, includes two full-sized basketball courts, an expansive strength training room with a cardio deck overlooking the space, three hydrotherapy pools, player lounge, locker room area, underground parking, barbershop, kitchen, media workroom, and office space for the team’s coaches, general manager, and basketball staff.
GRAEF engineers provided structural engineering design, including vibration controlled structural performance with its 130-foot long span fieldhouse.
Designed to promote an atmosphere of collaboration between players, coaches, trainers and front office staff, the facility encourages innovation, enhanced performance and team building. The team previously trained and practiced in St. Francis—six miles south of the arena—so the new facility consolidates all of the team’s needs and resources within one centralized location.
