Nova Southeastern University

2019 | DAVIE, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES | EDUCATION

This revolutionary 300,000 square foot, multi-use facility serves as a central hub for the 26,000 students that attend Nova Southeastern University. Located on a beautiful 300-acre campus in Davie, NSU is the largest independent institution of higher education in Florida.

With students leaving campus to train at outside, less functional facilities, Nova needed a high-performance sports complex that would motivate students and faculty without sacrificing resilience. Choosing Tarkett’s flooring gave NSU the durability within their sports complex that they were looking for, while also incorporating the aesthetic values that matched NSU colors and spirit.

A high-performance sports complex has influence over a student’s decision about the school that they will attend and Nova was very happy with the results. “The students couldn’t help but be in awe as they entered the complex for the first time,” commented Tom Vitucci, Director of Campus Recreation. “We have been hearing that this facility is more functional than larger universities.
