Minnesota State University, Mankato Dome + Complex

Mankato, MN | Sports + Recreation

Overview

ISG designed the new sports dome at Minnesota State University, Mankato (MSU,M), which will support University needs and will be available for community events.


Opportunity

MSU,M wanted a year-round facility for its students and athletic teams to be able to practice on campus.

Solution

ISG is working with MSU,M to design its new dome and athletics complex. The facility, a 240x450-foot dome membrane structure, will include a multi-use synthetic turf field that will be the size of 1.5 soccer fields. Its primary uses will be for soccer, lacrosse, softball, rugby, football practice, and other sports. When not in use by the University, MSU,M plans to lease dome space to other community sporting venues.

The facility is a seasonal structure designed to be up for six months each year, but the field inside the footprint will be operational throughout the year. The facility includes a 4,000 sq. ft. support building. The fabric for the dome is opaque, allowing no light transmission through the fabric, and inflation equipment will be located away from neighborhoods to reduce sound distraction.
