Albert Lea Hammer Complex

Albert Lea, MN | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG has been working with the Albert Lea School District and community to deliver a modern athletic complex that can accommodate a wide range of sports and spectators.


Opportunity

ISG worked with the Albert Lea School District on a referendum enabling the construction in a revitalized athletic complex to meet the needs of all teams, athletes, and community members.

Solution

ISG has been a consistent, valued partner for the Albert Lea School District for many years and guided the District through a successful $24.6 million referendum that allowed the school to invest in athletic and community assets. The Hammer Complex was a deteriorating athletic complex originally constructed in the 1960s. The District outgrew the facility and needed an updated set of facilities that could meet the needs of all sports teams and spectators, adhere to ADA accessibility standards, and become a visible part of their community for decades to come. Additional needs that needed to be addressed included:

  • Title IX equity between boys and girls sports
  • Visible part of community
  • Original stadium didn’t meet the needs of all spectators
  • Playability issues existed for multiple teams

ISG’s role included planning, design, and project management services for the District’s upgrades to the complex. The designs created by ISG brought the District’s vision to life while meeting the necessary requirements to allow for a more engaging, safer, and sustainable facility.
