Kentwood Public Schools
This stadium is home to the East Kentwood Falcons and features a synthetic turf football field as well as a nine-lane track.
Separate home and visitor grandstands can accommodate over 8,000 fans for each event. The stadium is also home to East Kentwood’s track team and is equipped with a synthetic grass multi-purpose athletic field with areas for high-jump, long-jump, pole-vaulting, discus and shot-put.
The home and visitor team buildings are located adjacent to the field. Each building holds team locker rooms and showers, coaches’ offices, training room, storage and referee rest rooms with private showers. During games the rivaling team’s fans can also utilize separate concession stands and bathrooms near the grandstands.
As part of this project, Triangle also renovated the Kentwood soccer stadium which included artificial turf and new concession buildings. Additional athletic improvements were completed including multi-purpose fields and basketball and tennis courts. New parking lots were added at the middle school to support the additional athletic facilities.
Triangle faced several challenges on the 24-acre site. The 128,000-volt power lines servicing a nearby plant sagged across the middle of the site. In order to protect the project team and equipment, a mid-span pole was installed to raise the power lines by forty feet.
