Owner: Menasha Joint School District
Completion: August 2017
Architect / Engineer: Point of Beginning, Inc.

Project Description:

Although the iconic stadium has served the Menasha community well since 1964, some repairs and upgrades were necessary. The facility was in need of general stadium infrastructure repairs, ADA compliance measures, safety enhancements, and updates and expansions to the restroom facilities. Renovated locker rooms add needed space for multiple growing programs, athletic trainers, game officials, and team meetings.

The natural turf field at Calder Stadium was replaced with synthetic turf, resulting in a better quality surface year-round that requires less maintenance, and provides a playing surface shown to reduce the frequency and severity of injuries to athletes. The adjacent Bayer soccer field will remain natural turf, but has been crowned and equipped with proper irrigation.

The updates will allow the facility to be used year-round by football, soccer, track and field, baseball, softball and golf, and position the District to attract WIAA playoff games, regional track meets, and events such as marching band competitions.

“The improvements at these facilities will open them up for additional use by the schools and community. Calder Stadium is recognized as an outstanding venue and we have done our best to assure that it will remain so for years to come.”

- District Superintendent, Chris VanderHeyden
