P17708: Rochester SportNet Improvements


Project Summary Project Information

SportsNet is a local program in Rochester, which provides those with disabilities the opportunity to enjoy adaptive sports and recreational activities. Some of these activities include cycling, skiing, golfing, hockey and more. Many of these require specialized equipment, which is stored by SportsNet while not in use. Currently their storage facility is not efficiently organized and contains safety hazards to those removing or storing the equipment.

This project aims to improve the space utilization within the unit to make storing and locating equipment more efficient while improving safety. With the end goal of allowing Mike and the other employees more time to do what is important, which is provide exciting and fullfilling experiences to people of all abilities.
