Architecture Overview:

The design of the Cyclone Sports Complex capitalizes on multi-function and shared-use spaces between Track & Field, Soccer, and Softball athletic programs. The site configuration of the Complex allows events for all programs to be ticketed in one location and shared concessions, restrooms, lockers, and storage spaces maximizes the use of all amenities of the Complex and significantly reduces single-use spaces. The architectural character of the Complex provides a unique identity for the Track & Field, Soccer, and Softball programs within Iowa State University Athletics as well as peer institutions within the NCAA.

During the design and construction of our new Cyclone Sports Complex, RDG was a valued business advisor from start to finish. As with most projects, we had unique challenges associated with the site location, the budget, and the program for the facility which required unique solutions. RDG was beside us from inception to completion and we ended up with a facility that was well regarded by our student-athletes, our fans, our coaches, our administration, and by the adjoining community.
