Forest City Athletic Fields

Forest City, IA | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG designed more dynamic athletic facilities for the Forest City community, leading the process to implement new multi-use fields and site features.


Opportunity

For its shared athletic fields, the Forest City School District and Waldorf College wanted to implement new synthetic turf fields, a new track surface, and greater amenities for stakeholders.

Solution

ISG completed a site analysis and topographic survey for needed improvements to the shared athletic fields and facilities of Waldorf College and the Forest City School District. In addition to planning and design services, a construction administration/inspections plan was coordinated by ISG to ensure successful project goals. The project consisted of both new construction and reconstruction of existing athletic facilities. This included new synthetic turf football, soccer, baseball and softball fields, new track and field construction, track resurfacing, athletic field lighting, irrigation, fencing, improved stormwater conveyance, new site access meeting ADA requirements and new concessions and restroom facilities. Together, these facilities provide a shared, multi-use athletic campus that serves an entire community.
