UW Health Sports Factory Starts Laying Hardwood

By  | 

ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- A game-changing facility that’s taken shape from the outside since getting its new name is heading into the final stretch on the inside.

Parts of the UW Health Sports Factory in downtown Rockford already look ready to keep score for the more than 500,000 expected guests each year.

Workers on the North Court are laying special wood flooring that will eventually cover eight courts in three sections, equating to almost 100,000 square feet of hardwood.

The facility is on schedule to open in May 2016.
