LSU Recreation Student Athletic Complex

Working with a team of architects and engineers, JFDS provided the master site plan for the expansion of the Student Recreation sports field complex at Louisiana State University. The site plan developed a multiuse complex that provides 8 full size sports fields and 4 softball fields within this 34-acre site. The layout of the complex allows for multiple sports programs within a footprint that was originally considered to be too small for the desired programs. Two fields are fiber-reinforced, to be used as game day parking for LSU football, and the softball complex is designed to make the field sports venues multipurpose. This was achieved by creative site planning, field drainage and state-of-the-art sports turf irrigation technology.
