Grandview High School - Stadium Improvements
Scope of Work:
Help the District achieve their goal of creating a modern stadium facility capable of hosting regional sporting and performance events with improved safety, accessibility and event viewing by producing a feasible design to replacement the 60's-era concrete grandstands. including ADA accessibility (previously not available) , increase seating capacity (from 890) to 2,100, premium seating, provide better viewing sight lines, and provide a new pres box with video deck.
Alinea Architects, as the prime consultant, provided overall project design and project management working closely with the civil engineers and bleacher system designers to produce and implement a successful design to achieve the District's goals.
Working in a very restrictive site wedged between the running track and the main service access drive to Grandview High School, the original bleacher capacity was increased from 890 to 2,100 including approx. 80 premium seats and accommodations for wheelchair-bound spectators. The new design includes three ADA accessible ramps allowing all patrons to easily access the grandstands, concessions and restrooms.
Included in the grandstand structure is the new press box which incorporates private offices for the Home and Away coaches and ample space for the announcers, scorekeepers and reporters. The roof of the press box is designed as a video deck with capabilities to integrate video equipment with the District's production studio space located inside the High School.
