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 supports University needs and allows 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 worked with MSU,M to design its new dome and athletic complex. The facility, a 240x450-foot dome membrane structure, includes a multi-use synthetic turf field, the size of 1.5 soccer fields. Its primary uses include soccer, lacrosse, softball, rugby, football practice, and other sports. When not in use by the University, MSU,M leases 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 is 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 is located away from neighborhoods to reduce sound distraction.

Partners for success included: Yeadon Domes; Field Turf- Kraus-Anderson; Alliance Contracting; WEB Construction; Feder Mechanical; DMI; Hunt Electric Corporation; MSU, M Facilities Management, Finance Departments, Office of Student Affairs and MSU,M Athletics; and Scheels.
