Penn State Berks Campus Athletic Facilities Feasibility Study
Spring Township, Berks County, PA
Terraform was part of a team that provided a feasibility study for the proposed athletic facilities at the Penn State Berks Campus located in Spring Township, Berks County, PA. The study included two grass playing fields, an artificial turf field, a baseball field, a softball field, six Tennis Courts, a Jogging trail, and a field house. The study identified regulatory approval requirements, environmental constraints and opportunities, conceptual layout, grading, and lighting. Utility requirements and availability was also investigated. Preliminary construction cost and project phasing was also addressed as part of the feasibility study.
After the feasibility study, Penn State Berks decided to move forward with an artificial turf field with bleachers and walkways located next to the Beaver Community Center. The project included layout, grading, stormwater design and all approvals required for the project. A stormwater irrigation system was design to address water volume control for the NPDES permit. Approvals were obtained from Spring Township and the Berks County Conservation District. Design also included all utilities for the site including water service, athletic field lighting, and site electric.
