PCL : University of Minnesota Siebert Field

University of Minnesota Siebert Field

Project Overview

The new Siebert Field is located on the site of the original ballpark, thus allowing the use of existing real estate and infrastructure. With a new press building, concessions, retail spaces, fixed seating for 1,500, and additional grass seating space, the new field is a destination for thousands of local sports fans.

By rotating the new field counterclockwise, field dimensions were maximized within the existing site constraints while maintaining the coaches' desired field orientations. This had the added benefit of providing space for future expansion on both the first- and third-base sides of the field. Additionally, the new playing surface was strategically lowered to allow for improved spectator sight lines and better dugout placement and access. The earthwork required to achieve these goals was extensive, but PCL's extensive planning and tightly controlled construction traffic minimized disruption to tenants in nearby residences.

Careful budget analysis resulted in cost savings that allowed foundations to be put in place for future expansion and additional facilities. The project was delivered on time and on budget, just in time for the 2013 baseball season.
