San Diego State University Tony Gwynn Baseball Stadium
San Diego, California

Fast Track Delivery

This 5,000-seat stadium project was a remodel of the baseball field (Smith Field) at San Diego State University, which included 3,800 fixed seats, batting cages, dugouts, concessions, team facilities, restrooms, and press box.

Phase II included additional batting/storage facilities beyond center field as well as decorative fencing, hardscape and landscape for the area surrounding the project. Phase II was coordinated with a relocation of the soccer field and running track.

Salerno/Livingston Architects completed this project within a very limited budget on a fast track schedule. Durability and maintenance of materials, security, and accessibility were strong considerations, and the project was phased to allow the team to begin practice and play games prior to completion of the facilities. The project was value engineered at various stages of design to control costs.

The project also included design review by the State Architect as well as local neighborhood and student accessibility design review groups. The accessibility group indicated that the project was the most accessible project they had reviewed to date.

Salerno/Livingston Architects received an architectural Orchid award for this project.
