Construction on the Fort Hays State University’s state-of-the-art track & field complex began in spring of 2016 with a groundbreaking ceremony on May 11 and was completed in the fall of 2016. The project was a result of new student housing being constructed in the space previously used for Tiger field events. After considering how to best address the need to relocate field events to a separate site away from Lewis Field, the best option became the construction of an entirely new track & field facility specifically designed for the sole purpose of track and field competition. Featuring grand stand bleachers for spectators, locker rooms, restrooms, a press box, concession stands, a 9-lane rubber track, jumping pits and specific event areas for javelin, discus, shot put, hammer and pole vault, this facility will serve the needs of current and future athletes for years to come.
Commercial Builders is very proud to have been the General Contractor on this project and many projects throughout the years at Fort Hays State University. GO TIGERS!
