Grand Opening of the ICCU Arena at the University of Idaho

By | Landscape Design, News | No Comments

We had a great time celebrating the Grand Opening of the ICCU Arena at the University of Idaho last weekend. The new ICCU Arena is an amazing addition to campus, and we are honored to have had a part in its design. Bernardo Wills Architects provided landscape architecture services to Opsis Architecture. Our designers coordinated with the civil engineer on issues such as site finish grading, pedestrian and ADA access routes, parking arrangements, hardscape areas, planting schemes, and site irrigation. We are thrilled with the project result and congratulate the University of Idaho administration, facilities department, and students (the Arena’s biggest donors) on this incredible addition that will serve generations to come. #GoVandals
