SHP was hired in 2017 to provide master planning services for Sycamore Community Schools, developing a comprehensive $127.5M building program that touches the entire district. The program includes $10M in exterior sports improvements. SHP provided full A/E design services as well as fundraising assistance for the athletic upgrades.
- Exterior athletic improvements include a varsity plaza and relocated baseball and softball fields.
- The new varsity football sports complex includes a 4,000-seat stadium and branded grandstands with a dedicated student section and two-story press box.
- A corresponding football fieldhouse includes ticketing and concessions, player and referee locker rooms, a laundry room and a film room.
- The design of the fieldhouse draws on the district’s aviation theme by incorporating a “winged” roof structure.
