East Carolina University Varsity Athletic Facilities

Greenville, NC

Benesch worked with the owner and design team to design site and building improvements for this 20 acre site near Clark-LeClair Baseball Field on the campus of East Carolina University. The program included multi-phased expansion and improvements to the varsity track, soccer, softball and basketball facilities. Each field features a lush, natural turf surface with a state of the art subdrainage system. The sports complex has an attractive decorative perimeter fence system matching the architectural character of the grandstands and support buildings. The sports complex is located on a prominent corner of the campus. Decorative fencing, monument signage, and landscaping was designed to create an attractive campus gateway.

Benesch provided master planning, detailed design, bidding, and construction administration for this Division One Varsity Sports Complex.
