Dedmon Center Renovations Begin April 13

RADFORD -- The Dedmon Center will close on Sunday, April 13, at 8 p.m. to allow extensive renovations to begin. Scheduled renovations include replacing the entire roof system, including the arena and pool areas, and replacing the entire building's HVAC system.

All indoor Dedmon Center facilities will be closed. This includes the indoor arena, weight room, racquetball courts, swimming pool and locker rooms.

The original Dedmon Center roof, constructed in 1980, will be replaced by a steel truss supported roof. By replacing the air supported roof with a structurally supported roof, a new air conditioning and air circulation system can be installed throughout the facility, including the arena and other areas that are currently not air conditioned. The renovations will take several months to complete
