Plainfield Schools Breaks Ground on Two New Field House Projects  

Share This Post

Representatives from Plainfield Public Schools were joined by students, Plainfield Mayor Adrian O. Mapp, city officials, and the district’s architecture and engineering firm, LAN Associates to celebrate the groundbreaking of two field house projects at the Hub Stine Sports Complex. The complex serves the district high school, which has a long and proud history of developing student athletes in Plainfield.

As the Architect-of-Record for the District, LAN was retained to provide architecture and engineering design services for both field house projects. The existing 6,850 sf Upper Field House on the 25-acre Hub Stine Sports Complex will undergo a complete interior renovation to create a collegiate level locker room setting. The locker room will be fully equipped with athletic lockers, toilet and shower facilities, as well as a trainer’s room, coach’s office, and storage/laundry rooms. The new layout also includes a team gathering area for meetings, review of game film, and lounging.

“Hub Stine is a center of wellness for the entire community of Plainfield and our students deserve to play and hone their skills in the best environment possible,” concluded Dr. Diana Mitchell, Superintendent of Plainfield Public Schools.

The renovated field house exudes Plainfield Cardinal pride with school colors and branding which sets a tone that conveys school spirit. The existing scissor tooth roof structure with clerestory windows provides natural light into the existing locker rooms, so LAN decided to express the structure. A soffit banding was added around the perimeter to incorporate colors and graphics. The end cap walls of each locker bay provide an ideal canvas to showcase photos of past and present school athletes.

“Student centered school pride is at the heart of Plainfield’s revamped athletic facilities,” said Danielle Farrell, LAN Associates Assistant Vice President, and Project Architect. “The project itself is a testament to the district’s commitment to their student athletes and the community.”

The second project that was kicked off at the groundbreaking is the new Lower Field House. This ground up rebuild will replace the former “tennis shack” structure that was built by students many decades ago. The new building includes two large multi-fixture public restrooms that are sized to accommodate the spectators of multiple sporting events occurring simultaneously in the complex. The building will also house an office for the tennis coach as well as athletic storage. A key feature of the building includes a new exterior gathering space with multiple seating options for spectators to congregate during events.

“The district is aggressively addressing facility needs and these are a few of the many projects that will be executed by Plainfield Public Schools over the next few years,” said Rashon Hasan, Plainfield Public Schools CFO. “We understand the need to invest in our facilities and look forward to making the necessary upgrades and renovations that the Plainfield Community can be proud of. These projects have an estimated cost of $4.6MM ($4,659,00) and are proof of our commitment to providing top-notch facilities for the district’s academic and educational programs.”
