SAN ANTONIO — HKS Sports & Entertainment Group has been selected to design a new athletics complex at The University of Texas at San Antonio (UTSA). The work includes a soccer stadium and track & field stadium, as well as the initial utilities, road and parking infrastructure.
The athletics complex will be located on a portion of the 125-acre UTSA Park West Campus, which is located approximately two miles west of Main Campus.
The project will be completed in multiple phases. The first phase includes the design and construction of a 1,000-seat soccer stadium, 1,000-seat track and field stadium and 500-space surface parking lot. The facilities will be used for public events as well as serving as home bases for the UTSA sports teams.
“The complex will promote synergy between the soccer and track stadium, allowing a shared concourse and fan amenities,” said Greg Whittemore, vice president with the HKS Sports & Entertainment Group. “Having all of their venues in one location will allow the complex to serve as the sports mecca for the university and community.”
The project’s first phase is slated for completion in time for UTSA soccer in Fall 2013. HKS Sports & Entertainment Group is working in association with Overland Partners Architects, based in San Antonio, to design the project. Bartlett Cocke General Contractors is the Construction Manager.
