University of Oregon Jane Sanders Softball Stadium
University of Oregon has long since made a name for itself in collegiate sports. And its new Jane Sanders Softball Stadium has quickly proven to be another worthy addition to the celebrated tradition of the athletic department.
This new 1,500-seat stadium, 15,000-square-foot team building and practice facility with an indoor softball field gives the University of Oregon softball team an iconic place to build their fan base, showcase their talents, and train at a professional level. As the MEP Engineers of Record, Glumac worked closely with the Architect and Contractor to fulfill University of Oregon’s vision for the stadium. Creating systems that could not only meet U of O’s needs but also prove to be cost effective, energy efficient, and innovative.
Our technology and lighting designers, along with our MEP engineering experts, collaborated with the project team to design specific sustainable building systems to enhance the experience of the team, the fans, and broadcast crews. Multi-level broadcast tie-ins make it easy for crews to plug-in and post out, and the field lighting was designed to enhance visual acuity and broadcast video quality. In the internal practice area, systems were integrated and protected so that they would neither detract nor be damaged by fervent practice. And in the locker rooms, the technology groups designed special USB outlets for players to charge their digital devices. Special attention was given to the aesthetics of the fan areas as well, as University of Oregon wanted an inviting and exciting place for fans to come and enjoy this growing sport. A place of particular interest is the outdoor canopy. Our lighting group worked closely with the Architects to design showcase lighting into the structure that highlights the wings and other architectural details without distracting from the design.
Immediately after its opening, University of Oregon discovered Jane Sanders Stadium was so popular that its 1,500 seats weren’t enough. This has led to the Project Team designing additional outfield seating to solve the problem of increased attendance. In the end this new sports complex not only achieved its goals, it far exceeded them, setting new standards for softball spaces and sports facilities alike.
