Miami University, Women's Varsity Softball Stadium
CHA was responsible for the planning, design and construction administration of this National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Division I women’s varsity competition softball field through construction drawing. The $3.4 million facility seats 700 fans and includes a picnic area and restrooms. In addition, team dugouts with related storage and restrooms, batting cages and bullpen areas were provided for the Lady Redhawks and their opponents, and a press box and sound system provide quality game and tournament coverage. The field itself is composed of natural sand-based turf. Designers coordinated their efforts with the university’s athletic master plan, and included pedestrian and vehicular circulation on the site, as well as utility connection.
