The University of South Carolina is seeking architects and engineers for the first phase of a multimillion-dollar upgrade to its existing track and field facilities in the Athletics Village site.
The project, which is expected to cost $9 million to $10 million, will involve demolition of its track and field facilities and a parking lot along Rosewood Drive. A new nine-lane track oval and all associated field event facilities will be reconstructed in this area.
The project also will involve extension of the existing Athletic Village promenade walkway to connect the softball and track facilities, and grading and drainage upgrades to support new construction as well as support the existing soccer practice fields.
The selected design team will need to consider support spaces such as public restrooms, storage areas, concessions and seating for 1,000 spectators, the university said. Landscaping and irrigation upgrades, as well as lighting, are also a part of the project.
The selected architects and engineers may have the opportunity to proceed to Phase II of the project.
Interested parties should contact Lind Jackson, contract administrator, at 743 Greene St., Columbia, S.C. 29208. Further information about the project can be found at the South Carolina Business Opportunities website.
