Dan O'Brien Track and Field Complex

A major renovation creates a high-performance sporting venue.

This large-scale renovation creates a premier venue for athletic events and practice. Converting the track from a tight-oval to a wide-oval improves runners’ times and allows all field events to take place in the resulting larger infield, facilitating coaching and viewing by spectators. A sophisticated drainage system resolves a longstanding problem with ground and surface water accumulation.
