We provided design for an indoor sports complex.
As a member of the design-build team, we provided architectural and structural design and construction services for Hitter’s Sportsplex. The 72,000-square-foot building includes a 50,000-square-foot area designed to incorporate a regulation-size baseball/softball field with indoor field turf flooring, which is also used as an indoor golf driving range. Other areas include automated batting cages, training facilities, and concession stand. The unique facility features a 225-by-225-foot clear span with 50-foot eave height. The exterior of the building is a combination of masonry veneer and exterior metal building panels; natural light is incorporated into the building through insulated translucent panels.
A more recent modification involved converting the baseball/softball facility to a partial tennis facility. The field was modified by removing the field turf playing surface and replacing it with asphalt paving, providing space for six full-size and two junior-size tennis courts. New lighting and court dividers were also added to complete the modification from baseball/softball to tennis. An elevator and second staircase were added to provide access to the expanded mezzanine, which includes new men and women restrooms and locker rooms, as well as a lounge.
