Overview

ISG worked with the University to update its athletic fields to accommodate a wide variety of sports and implement new spectator amenities.


Opportunity

Minnesota State University, Mankato, needed an update to its outdoor athletic facilities to fulfill the needs of its athletic programs, as well as its entire student body.

Solution

Renovation of existing fields, development of new natural turf fields, and a fitness trail that winds through the outdoor athletic complex provides a wide-range of sporting opportunities for this University. Innovative drainage plans as well as structural, mechanical and electrical work were incorporated into the new accessory-use buildings to house bleachers, restrooms and a concession plaza. Creative design tactics were used to develop shared-use fields to maximize the usability of the limited land available.
