University of Dayton Indoor Turf and Track Renovation

Dayton, Ohio

Sportworks Design provided civil engineering and 3D laser scanning services for the University of Dayton Indoor Facility. This $700,000, 30,000 SF project included:

• Renovating the existing indoor track and basketball courts
• Keeping a portion of the running track around the perimeter
• Reducing the number running lanes
• Keeping the long jump pit and runway while reducing the pit length
• Adding a synthetic turf field in place of basketball courts
• Adding in new mezzanine-type storage
• Adding drop-down net curtain dividers
The curtain dividers allow the facility to separate the turf from the track so athletes can still train while there are ball-type sports on the interior. Additionally, this gives them the flexibility to split the synthetic turf field in half so multiple teams and user groups can use it simultaneously without interfering with each other.
One of the biggest challenges Sportworks faced was the transition of the synthetic turf to the running track to ensure a smooth transition. It took a lot of attention and customized detail for our design team to develop.
