Structural Features

  • This athletic competition stadium uses a blend of structural CMU, steel, precast concrete, and timber elements to design locker rooms, concessions, entry plaza, a press box, and grandstand seating for over 2,500 spectators.
  • At the stadium’s entrance, massive arched doors welcome guests.  The Berry College mascot is “The Vikings” and the grand arched entrance hearkens to the legendary Viking hall of Valhalla.  U+C designed the foundations and 12-foot-tall columns that support the entry’s large decorative metal arch.
  • The guest service building showcases exposed timber king post trusses.
  • Under the home grandstand, a new 1-story, 8,900 sf facility provides locker rooms for home and visiting athletes.  The facility was designed with masonry walls, steel roof girders, and CFMF roof trusses.
  • Along the sides of the home grandstands, handsome exposed HSS steel screenwalls provide shaded areas for guests.
