Musselman Stadium, Gettysburg College
The stadium project developed from a goal to modernize their team locker facilities. The work began with a feasibility study and cost estimate to define the spatial and code requirements for 120 players using larger, improved locker units and to completely renovate the shower facilities.
The Athletics Department sought to define the Gettysburg College football “brand” and strengthen alumni outreach through the investigation of designs and renderings that included dedicated event space and possible skyboxes. The study resulted in a two-phase construction project. The shower facilities were renovated in Phase One and were designed to accommodate the complete build-out scheduled for Phase Two. The phased work allowed for the football, lacrosse, and track seasons to operate without interruption, and works with designated College budgets while allowing for additional donor campaigns and potential future upgrades such as an option to add a second story.
Following completion of the feasibility study and Phase One of the home team locker room renovations, Schradergroup was retained by the College to additionally provide the architectural and structural engineering services required for the completion of Phase Two of the project. Renovations and additions apply to the home team locker room as well as training room areas for the current 120-member football team.
