Tarlton Corp., a St. Louis-based general contracting and construction management firm, completed construction on a new softball stadium for the Missouri Tigers softball team at the University of Missouri in Columbia, Missouri.
Located in the Mizzou Sports Park, the facility is east of the university’s Hearnes Center and visible from Stadium Boulevard. It replaces University Field.
Tarlton, which served as construction manager for the $17.5 million project financed primarily by private gifts, also provided preconstruction services. The team built the 20,000-square-foot facility on what was a commuter parking lot. The new softball stadium provides fans with a full-view concourse, outfield plaza and new surface parking lot with more than 500 spaces. Work was completed March 2 and began on March 1, 2016, following construction of a separate, nearby university parking lot.
The structural steel-framed building stands on a concrete foundation with a concrete slab and metal deck and aluminum grandstands. It includes a press box, concessions, heated dugouts, a locker room with video capabilities and meeting room for coaches. The venue also features lawn seating on a berm beyond the outfield wall for additional spectators.
