Design Achievement - The Michael G. Morrison, S.J., Stadium provides Creighton University student-athletes and fans with one of the nation's top collegiate soccer experiences. Situated at the eastern edge of campus, the stadium splendidly captures Creighton's urban setting, as spectators enjoy views of the downtown Omaha skyline from almost every seat. DLR Group's design maximizes visual connections between the stadium, pitch, and surrounding city to create a soccer atmospher second-to-none. A steep seating configuration covered by a weather and wind protective canopy provides tremendous intimacy with the action.
Scope Summary - The scope of this project encompassed the design of a new 100,000 SF collegiate soccer stadium with seating for 6,000. DLR Group's design oriented the artificial turf playing field north to south in order to mitigate both the prevailing breezes and glare. All service facilities were placed out of view to avoid interfering with the spectator experience. A continuous concourse surrounds the field. DLR Group provided planning, architecture, and engineering services.
