Barry Isett & Associates was the civil engineering consultant in the development of a Master Plan to update the University’s recreational facilities. Isett worked with Sasaki Associates of Watertown, MA, in the development of a five-phase program slated to be completed over 20 years.
Phase One, projected to cost about $16 million, includes a new track and field complex, two artificial turf fields, parking improvements, baseball and softball field upgrades featuringstadium seating, and an addition to Billera Hall that will house team locker rooms and athletic offices.
The construction also will provide a "promenade," a wide walkway that will link the athletic fields and provide a safe and expedient walkway from the parking lots to all the sport venues even as it crosses Station Avenue and Preston Lane.
In the execution of Phase One, Isett is providing:
- Site/Civil Engineering and Permitting
