East Carolina University (ECU) sought to expand and improve its Division One varsity track, soccer, softball and basketball facilities on its 20-acre site. The site sits adjacent to Clark-LeClair Baseball Field and nearby to Dowdy-Ficklen Football Stadium – a prominent corner of the campus.
Each field in the varsity sports complex features a lush, natural turf surface with a state-of-the-art subdrainage system. The complex has an attractive decorative perimeter fence system matching the architectural character of the grandstands and support buildings. Decorative fencing, monument signage and landscaping were designed to create an attractive campus gateway.
Benesch worked alongside ECU from the master plan through construction documents on this accelerated, multi-phased project to design site improvements for the complex.
