WMF works with PSU to Design Buildings for Soccer Teams

.

In Fall 2010, Penn State asked WMF to work with the Men’s and Women’s Soccer teams to study the need for, and siting of, a ‘meeting pavilion’ for use during practice. Meetings with the Coaches, the University Planners and members of the grounds staff lead to 3 siting options and explored various uses for the structure.  Solar panels were investigated as an option for a pavilion with LED lighting, and no other electricity.

.

Eventually the program and site were finalized and the plan is to give both teams their own room that would double as game day change rooms, will accommodate secure storage, and will be used daily during the practice season for ‘quick meeting’ space.

Coach Walsh recently returned from the Germany with the 2011 Women’s National Team.
