Lewiston Public Schools

High School Athletic Complex

Lewiston, Maine

Since a new elementary school was approved to be constructed on the original Lewiston High School athletic fields, Harriman designed an entire new athletic field complex on nearby portions of the high school campus. This gave Lewiston Public Schools the opportunity to create up-to-date athletic fields and facilities to replace their aging infrastructure. Harriman civil engineers worked closely with the school athletic director and other officials to design a new synthetic-turf soccer/football field stadium adjacent to the school gym, a new 8-lane rubber-surfaced running track with field events, a new synthetic-turf baseball field with flexibility for playing field hockey and other sports, and a renovated softball field on a nearby parcel.

Harriman’s full-service team of engineers and architects also were engaged to design athletic complex amenities, such as two concession stands with toilet facilities, two elevated pressboxes, four dugouts, a storage building, and site and field lighting.

Major revisions to this large urban school parcel dictated a complex environmental review process with the City of Lewiston, Maine Department of Environmental Protection, and US Army Corps of Engineers. Harriman civil engineers managed the review process, provided campus-wide stormwater analysis with several large treatment beds, and coordinated wetland and stream mitigation measures.
