ATHLETIC FIELD AND TRACK
RALEIGH, NORTH CAROLINA
Meredith College is a private women’s college in Raleigh, North Carolina that joined the USA South Athletic Conference in 2007. The move into a new conference sparked the desire to improve their soccer field which had been their varsity practice and game field for the past fifteen years.
Due to physical space limitations, the field needed to move from its current location to expand to FIFA standards. The college chose to build in the open campus yard near the entrance and added Lacrosse and Track to the venue in anticipation of an expanded athletic program.
Integrated Design master planned a new 250 seat stadium that will feature a FieldTurf playing surface encircled by a synthetic surfaced track. To be built in multiple phases, the first phase included the new field, track, sports lighting, and maintenance building, and was completed in the spring of 2009. In future phases, the maintenance building will become the lower level of the lockers and hospitality building, which will be linked to the press box and seating by a brick arcade.
