Southwest Minnesota State University - Marshall Regional Track and Field Complex

Marshall, MN | Sports + Recreation

Overview

Southwest Minnesota State University (SMSU) and Marshall Public Schools cooperated to plan a major renovation and expansion of the University’s on-campus athletic complex.


Opportunity

In order to provide an athletic complex that serves the University, District, and other community events, SMSU and Marshall Public Schools needed to determine their options for a shared athletic complex that would support a vast range of activities.

Solution

ISG worked with SMSU and Marshall Public Schools to develop a predesign report for their collaborative effort to renovate and expand the Marshall Regional Track and Field Complex, formerly known as Mattke Stadium and located in the northeast corner of the SMSU campus. The resulting report analyzed a number of alternatives, including track reconstruction, track surfacing options, track and field events, soccer field surfacing options (synthetic turf vs. natural grass), adjacent infrastructure, and future improvements, including the rehabilitation of bleacher seating.

The final design for the athletic complex included a new track, track and field event areas, synthetic field, walking paths, and stadium lighting. As part of the cooperative agreement, SMSU uses the facility for track and field, soccer, rugby, practice football, and club sports, while the Marshall High school uses it for football, soccer, and track and field.
