TitleUSI Athletics' Complex Conceptual Design and Estimate
MetadataShow full item record
AbstractThis report includes the conceptual design process for an Athletics’ Complex for the University of Southern Indiana (USI). This process includes the preliminary sizing of the facility and the space that it will require to meet the standards of the National College Athletic Association (NCAA) and International Amateur Athletics Federation (IAAF). A location for the site was then established on the University’s property at the existing intramural and rugby fields. A site survey was performed, and data was recorded and supplemented with light detection and ranging (LiDAR) to produce a topographic map of the site. Then the alignment of the complex was established which required the existing Clarke Lane to be relocated to create enough space for the Athletics’ Complex. The possible alignments were analyzed and chosen to minimize the impact on the existing traffic flow. This was accomplished by routing the alignment around the Complex to the existing roadway. The impact of the increased hard surfaces and the runoff associated was analyzed to determine the impacts on the existing stormwater infrastructure. It was found that the existing infrastructure was able to handle the increase but will need to consider replacement due to its deteriorating state. A conceptual estimate was then created using parametric and historical data techniques of similar facilities. The total cost of a facility with these features was found to be $9,930,131.
