Bucknell University

Lewisburg,

Baseball And Softball Facility Design Advisor

In 2008 Bucknell University realized that its plan to add a baseball and softball complex faced some challenges in terms of site constraints and access limitations. The university engaged B&D to address those challenges and review previously completed design drawings. It also asked for a detailed program, cost estimate, and budget. After our review, we recommended a shared spectator support area to accommodate both users. One centralized building could support press boxes, concession stands, and restrooms for both, as well. We further suggested the university install artificial turf to maximize use and minimize maintenance. Upon completion of our study, Bucknell initiated funding for the new baseball and softball complex.
