University of Oregon PK Park

Sports/Recreation

Text size: A A

Submitted by Lease Crutcher Lewis

This $16 million baseball park for the University of Oregon in Eugene was built in two phases next to the school’s existing football stadium. The first phase began with the demolition of part of the stadium’s parking lot and the excavation and laser-grading of the baseball field to a tolerance of 1/4 in. per 25 ft. Crews built a practice area, lower level seating for a thousand people and a temporary grandstand.

Phase two added the main seating bowl for more than 2,500 fans underneath an exposed-wood canopy roof, entry plaza and architectural pylons, Founders’ and Lettermen’s walls, picnic area, locker rooms, a team clubhouse, premium seating suites, concessions areas and large public restrooms.

The team completed the project three weeks early and under budget without sacrificing quality, despite the fact that owner implemented a 30% increase to the scope halfway through the six-month first phase.
