Athletics and Recreation
IGW designed the new Urbana Tigers Athletics Complex at Urbana High School in Urbana, Illinois. The existing grass football, soccer and track fields at the high school campus were reconceived as a multi-use outdoor activity and event center including a new athletics gateway and walk of fame. This weather resistant, extended-use facility includes new synthetic turf fields, spectator seating and press box, ticketing, concessions and restrooms, site lighting and storage for both athletic and grounds maintenance equipment.
Maximizing the use of a restricted site, the venue provides practice and performance fields for the athletic teams, outdoor area for physical education and extracurricular activities and needed facilities for interscholastic tournaments and public recreation. Improvements to the pedestrian and vehicular access to the site, parking and drop-off and underground storm detention were also included as part of the project.
