Oltmans Construction Co. provided construction services and self-performed portions of the concrete work on the University of La Verneâ€™s West Campus Athletics Facility project, the new home of the Leopards baseball and softball teams. The project required major coordination with the City of La Verne and the ULV Project Consultant Team in order to meet all state and local regulatory requirements and critical deadlines for school openings.
The existing offsite West Campus Area, west of Wheeler Avenue and South of Arrow Highway, covers approximately 16 acres and was undeveloped at the start of construction. The scope of work was to convert the existing West Campus Site into the new West Campus Athletic Facility, which involved mass grading, excavation, prepping and infrastructure work including all dry and wet utilities as well as the extension of Wheeler Avenue to the Private Road and installation of the Private Road.
The completed project features NCAA-compliant baseball field and softball fields, each with bleacher seating for 300, team dugouts, bullpens press box and digital scoreboard; two (2) softball and baseball steel framed batting cage structures with metal roofing, high-performance tunnel nets and light fixtures; site work including two parking lots, fencing, landscaping, walkways, on-site lighting, and a multipurpose field with Musco lights to be used for intramural sports. The facility building includes baseball and softball locker rooms, showers/team rooms, public restrooms, drinking fountains and a training room (shell space) and was constructed of CMU block.
