PlainsCapital Park – Lowrey FieldLubbock ISD Lubbock, Texas
PSC’s services were engaged for extensive upgrades to Lubbock ISD’s 50-year-old football facility, Plains Capital Park-Lowrey Field.
The fieldhouse is set into the stadium bowl so that it is closer to the playing surface for ease of access, safety, and ADA compliance. It is large enough to support multiple teams for district play with its four locker rooms. These rooms can be converted into two large locker rooms using overhead doors. Since the facility is shared by four high schools, the four locker rooms were a necessary design feature to accommodate Friday night doubleheaders and back-to-back playoff games.
The new field features a three-story press box full of the latest technology. The press box also serves as a sophisticated a meeting place for program supporters and the athletic community. The park’s two concession stands and restroom facilities were designed to accommodate the anticipated expansion of the stadium to 10,000 seats. One of the unique challenges presented by this project was the limited available footprint for the concession and restroom facilities. PSC overcame this challenge by building attractive, curvilinear retaining walls to provide the space for these buildings. This innovate feature required comprehensive civil engineering and landscaping strategies for placement of the walls, drainage, and utilities. The result is a stylish look and easy access for spectators.
