Athletic Complex

Girard High School

The existing competition facilities for football and soccer at Girard were in a state of disrepair. The scope of the project was to develop a new facility for competition football and soccer on an existing practice field with an all-weather track. The design solution provided home side bleacher seating for 2,500 with a 1,400 sq. ft. press box including two scouting boxes and two video top platforms. Visitor side bleacher seating for 1,000 was added as well as a new sound system, scoreboard, and field lighting.

The project also included an 8,000 sq. ft. field house located under the home side bleachers. The field house houses two team locker rooms for sixty players, associated shower and toilet facilities, plus referee facilities and storage. A concession stand was constructed at a location, which also allowed this building to include four ticket windows and public toilet facilities.

The materials and roof geometry for this project were selected to reflect the materials and forms of the adjacent High School and Middle School buildings.
