Notre Dame, Indiana
Project Detail Information
The University of Notre Dame commissioned Lehman & Lehman, Inc. to complete a master plan and provide design services for the University’s new Athletics Quad, which will be located in the area that currently houses Notre Dame’s athletic facilities. Deliverables for the project included athletic stadium and practice field site layouts, as well as design asthetics and landscape enhancements, packaged into presentation documentation with conceptual site illustrations, site master utility plan, master plan renderings, and construction cost estimates and phasing.
The purpose of the project was to integrate the current and proposed athletic facilities into the fabric of the University’s central campus. Giving priority to the pedestrian, plazas and entries – complete with decorative brick pavement, natural stone seat walls, benches, bike racks, lighting, wayfinding signage and complementary landscaping – were created to provide individual identities for each of the various athletic venues, while maintaining the campus standard. Ample open space was developed in the master plan to not only provide transition, but to encourage special events and hospitality staging.
The master plan included the relocation of the track stadium to provide space for three new football practice fields, as well as new tennis, soccer, and lacrosse stadiums – each with its own television service area to facilitate event broadcasting. In addition, the master plan provided improved pedestrian and vehicular circulation.
