OUR WORK

ISU JACK TRICE STADIUM ADDITION SOUTH END ZONE
AMES, IOWA
The creation of the south end zone increased the stadium seating capacity to 61,000 seats. The addition connected two existing concourses to create a more enclosed and intimate fan experience. A 40,000 sf two-level club space provides an upscale fan experience and incorporates outdoor seating. The project also serves as a marker for the south entrance to the campus.

UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, BECKWITH BOATHOUSE
IOWA CITY, IOWA
Surrounded by towering cottonwood trees, this new rowing facility is situated to embrace the Iowa River. The 23,000 sf building includes a state-of-the-art rowing tank, critical for year-round training. A wide range of sustainable features were incorporated, for both the building and site design, and the project is the University of Iowa’s first LEED building.
COMMUNITY RECREATION CENTER
FAIRFIELD, IOWA
A bridging link between the existing community pool and rec building, this new facility provides a 200 meter track and three multi-purpose courts. The addition provides a central lobby space and single check-in point for the entire complex.
UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, CARVER-HAWKEYE ARENA ADDITION & RENOVATION
IOWA CITY, IOWA
Prior to this addition/renovation, the facility was grossly undersized. The 252,000 sf project provides team facilities, including a 16,000 sf practice gym, a strength training facility, administrative/coaching offices, and locker rooms. The addition is designed to complement the existing award-winning architecture and minimizes the overall scale. An atrium separates the new and existing structures. New event space, a ticketing office, and an entry lobby work together to create a new front door for the facility. (In collaboration with: HNTB)
KIRKWOOD COMMUNITY COLLEGE, RECREATION CENTER
CEDAR RAPIDS, IOWA
The one story building is constructed primarily of precast concrete, metal panels and a high performance glazing system. The 44,000 sf facility houses a 200 meter running track with three basketball courts in the center. A cardio-vascular and weight training area infill either end of the track. All functions of the facility can be monitored from the control desk, minimizing staff requirements.
UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, KINNICK STADIUM ADDITION & RENOVATION
IOWA CITY, IOWA
Kinnick Stadium’s original structure was built in 1929. Several long-standing facility shortcomings were addressed including: structural updates, a new south end zone structure with a south plaza entrance, and demolishing and rebuilding the press box. The 318,000 sf project was broken down into several phases over three seasons and was completed without interrupting season play. (In collaboration with: HNTB)
UNIVERSITY OF IOWA, HAWKEYE TENNIS AND RECREATION FACILITY
IOWA CITY, IOWA
This project involves several components of University Sports and select components of the Recreation Department. The large anchoring elements – tennis to the west and field hockey to the east – are pre-manufactured metal buildings which adhere to the very modest project budget. A two-story link is constructed of full-height glass curtain wall and connects all elements. This component provides general recreation space, locker rooms, coach’s offices, and support spaces.
