Multipurpose Stadium

The new Multi-purpose field complex supports the football, soccer, field hockey, and lacrosse programs. Instructional sports related classrooms are housed within the facility.

The stadium seats approximately 3,000 fans with 2,500 chairback seats on the home side and an additional 500 bleacher seats on the visitor side.

A three story supporting building is connected to the home side bleachers which includes a fully-wired press box and camera platforms on the third level.  The building houses the home team, visitors, and officials locker rooms.

Areas were provided for team training (including a human performance lab), taping, hydrotherapy, and instructional classrooms.  Numerous coaches offices and equipment rooms support the multi-sport structure.  Public toilet rooms, concession stands, and Team Shop are located on the first floor.  An adjacent Pavilion structure serves as a gathering space for a variety of events including a place for alumni to meet during football games.

Electrical design consisted of a new secondary electrical service from the University’s primary system (including an emergency generator); interior, exterior, and field lighting; scoreboard power; stadium sound systems; fire alarm; and technology wiring.

Site lighting design involved entrance lighting, parking lot lighting, and walkway bollards.  The six pole field lighting layout adequately lights the arena during evening events.

Mechanical design involved the HVAC, plumbing, and fire protection systems.  Heating and cooling systems were designed with two natural gas boilers, an air cooled water chiller, and air distribution equipment.  Plumbing systems support the HVAC systems, locker rooms, restrooms, and concession stands.  The mechanical equipment was specifically designed to be located under the home side bleacher section requiring a unique ventilation scenario.
