Workers with R.J. Jurowski Construction Inc. of Whitehall, Wis., continue their work on the renovation construction project of the Rumpel Fitness Center into December 2022 at Fort McCoy.

The project began Nov. 1 and is expected to be completed in fall 2023, said General Engineer Gareth Ferguson with the Fort McCoy Directorate of Public Works.

"The project includes the exterior receiving new siding, roofing, and sidewalks as well as a storage addition," Ferguson said. "The interior is receiving a full layout redesign that includes locker rooms, cardio/stretching/equipment areas, and offices. There will also be fresh paint throughout, a new entryway and vestibule, and a new redesigned pool."

It's expected the contractor will work through the winter.

“The renovations will create a modernized, energy efficient facility,” said Fort McCoy Directorate of Family and Morale, Welfare and Recreation (DFMWR) Director Patric McGuane said.

While Rumpel Fitness Center is being renovated, building 1395 by the Fort McCoy Running Track is fully outfitted with the equipment from the Rumpel Fitness Center and open for the post community as a fitness facility.

Other buildings will also be available for fitness activities, including buildings 221 and 1783. Building 221 will be an annex to building 1395 for peak training times and fitness classes. This building will be open beginning in January 2023. It’s located in the north corner of Fort McCoy — down the road from the central fuel station. Building 221 will have limited hours and limited equipment.

Building 1783 will be available beginning in the spring 2023 for unit physical training.

Fort McCoy was established in 1909 and its motto is to be the “Total Force Training Center.”

Located in the heart of the upper Midwest, Fort McCoy is the only U.S. Army installation in Wisconsin.

The installation has provided support and facilities for the field and classroom training of more than 100,000 military personnel from all services nearly every year since 1984.
