Adjacent busy streets, tight spaces, nearby parking lots. The challenges were tricky for Spalding University in Louisville. A primary challenge was just getting started and finding the right company to work with. This is the story of how Beacon became their one-stop-shop.
Tight spaces were the biggest issue. Multipurpose fields are built right against three busy streets to the west, north and south and the softball field’s outfield is pushed right up against a frequently-full parking lot. Maintaining excellent spectator sightlines and being able to easily raise and lower the netting for off-season storage were necessary. It would be a major investment for the university, so getting it right the first time was critical.
