Gewalt Hamilton Associates, Inc. (GHA) was retained by Lake Forest College to convert a portion of their south-campus athletic field adjacent to the campus’s Ice Center and Field House. The improvement included a synthetic turf multi use rectangular field, designated to serve Men’s and Women’s Lacrosse and Soccer (4-color striping), and women’s softball. Field Geometry adhered to NCAA guidelines.

Additional improvement included softball dugout modification, batting cages, pitching bullpen, and perimeter sidewalk. Elevated net system and fencing were included to protect spectators, set in curb to manage grade steps around the project edges.

A Rain Garden is included at the primary stormwater outfall to the City’s storm sewer to improve water quality of the project runoff.
