John B. Walker Soccer ComplexTexas Tech University Lubbock, Texas
PSC provided Architectural, Engineering and Landscape Architectural services to Texas Tech University for the design of the new John B. Walker Women’s Soccer Complex.
Texas Tech’s desire to elevate the women’s soccer program began with PSC’s identification of Texas Tech’s needs and desires and close coordination with both the University Athletic Department and Office of Facility Planning and Construction.
Ultimately, a small practice field and full-sized regulation field were identified along with security fencing, stadium seating for 1,500 fans, press box accommodations and a 10,700 SF team building with locker rooms, team meeting rooms, therapy spaces, offices, restrooms and concession areas. PSC worked to balance the program’s desires with the budget and schedule of both the Athletic Department and Office of Facilities Planning and Construction.
PSC landscape architects took specific roles in coordinating the site design elements including the grading and drainage of the field areas and the adjacent pedestrian and landscape area improvements.
The two fields were designed with synthetic turf and the site landscape drainage patterns were designed to accommodate the collection of storm water beneath the fields through tiled drainage systems. The grading of the field surfaces as well as the lighting of the fields were closely coordinated with the coaches of the team for optimal conditions regarding NCAA regulations. The site environs were enhanced with pedestrian amenity areas, broad sidewalks, enhanced paving designs with Texas Tech logos, landscape plantings and irrigation to make the spectator’s experience exciting and memorable from a competitive collegiate sporting event perspective.
