McCasland Field House was home to The University of Oklahoma's basketball team until 1975. Currently the building houses the wrestling and volleyball programs. The building underwent a major rehabilitation and restoration in three phases from 2004 to 2012 at a cost of nine million dollars and is the recipient of the State Historic Preservation Officer’s Citation of Merit Award from the Oklahoma Historical Society.
The building received its first heating and air and new electrical system in 2004. In 2007 and 2012 the building received restroom renovations, new restrooms, locker rooms and offices.
The building envelope was renovated with new energy efficient aluminum windows to match the original steel single pane windows, a complete masonry tuck point restoration as well as a new roof, all while considering life cycle and maintenance costs.
The building entrances and lobbies were renovated with new wood doors to match the original and the wood transoms were rehabilitated.
By the end of the third phase this 86 year old Oklahoma treasure was brought back to its original glory.
