Virginia G. Piper Sport and Fitness Center for Persons with Disabilities

Baldinger Architectural Studio as Architects

In March of 2012 the second and last phase of the Disability Empowerment Campus was completed with the opening of the 45,000 S.F. Virginia G. Piper Sport and Fitness


Center for Persons with Disabilities (SpoFit), a first of its kind Sport facility in the Western United States.


With the experienced gained from the first phase design and construction and an ever heightened commitment to remove all barriers, we seamlessly fused function, environmental considerations and high aesthetics into a “total environment” extending from the site to buildings. The SpoFit fulfills its intended program requirements and goals while promoting health, wellness and the active participation in sport and fitness activities of the widest group of empowered users; be it the individual user, the Olympic athlete, a local Sports Club or National team. The campus greatest achievement is the “total environment” affording complete freedom of movement and activity, in a safe, healthy environment. This well perceived “total environment” contributes to the stake holders pride in ownership, a community that for too long had to adapt to make-shift solutions.


In a short period of time the campus has become an identifiable center for cultural, educational, social, recreational and competitive sport activities for the Greater Phoenix Disability Community.
