SCU Stevens Stadium
Santa Clara, CA
New Stadium Entry Wall and Plaza – The new entry wall is approximately 350lf x 15’ tall and contains several new archway openings with decorative iron gates that serve as the main entrance into the stadium. Constructed with a combination of CMU, steel columns, metal studs and finished with lath & plaster, the top of the wall is capped with a clay tile roof element. There is also a new stand-alone sign wall constructed from CMU with precast caps and a plaster skim coat finish, located near Palm Drive and the entry walkway. The landscape along the wall and at the entrance is reworked, mostly to match existing, with new mature palm trees and tree grates.
New Restroom Building – The new restroom building is approximately 1,600 SF and is constructed underneath the bleacher grandstand; it serves both men and women. The building is framed with metal stud load bearing walls to support a concrete over metal deck roof structure. The exterior is finished with lath & plaster, the interior is finished with water/mold resistant XP gyp board walls & ceilings, FRP, paint, and sealed concrete.
ADA Improvements – The ADA improvements consist of removal of existing wood bleachers and hand rails at the east-side bleachers, and constructing small concrete retaining walls with new handrails that provide ADA seating areas along the concrete walkway.
New Bleacher Grandstand with Elevator Tower and Press Box – The new grandstand consists of approximately 2,000 new seats, both bleachers and chair backs. There is an elevated platform supported with concrete over metal deck to house the modular press box, VIP lounge, restrooms and utility room. This platform is accessed by a new elevator tower constructed with a structural steel frame, metal stud in-fill and a lath & plaster exterior finish.
