Otterbein University Memorial Stadium Renovation
Sportworks Design provided professional surveying and engineering services for the Memorial Stadium Improvements, a $2 Million project. The project included removing existing track surface and replacing with an 8-lane synthetic track while replacing the existing grass field with improved drainage and Synthetic Turf that is striped for 4 sports; Football, Soccer, Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse. The project also included the addition of new NCAA track events, long jump, high jump, pole vault, and steeplechase.
The biggest challenge was completing the work within a constraining site. All work was completed between the existing grandstands and utility tunnel which serves the entire campus. A detailed topographic survey of the field, stadium and area immediately surrounding the stadium was required, and utility investigation included the determination of the locations, sizes and depths of various underground utilities within the project limits. The new facility opened in the fall of 2014.
