Mitchell College – Athletic Complex Redevelopment
Kent + Frost was hired to redesigned the exterior athletic complex at Mitchell College in New London, Connecticut. The primary goal of the project was to reorganize the existing overlapping fields to allow for three dedicated full synthetic turf fields. The new layout eliminates seasonal conflicts between sports, and provides a playing surface which can be utilized by the College year round. Each field was designed to NCAA standards while the overall site was designed to function as a unified complex, with common branding, accessible pathways, athletic training support, and significantly improved spectator areas. Site amenities including professional ball safety tension netting, brick detailing, custom dugouts, press boxes, and full function scoreboards for each field will enhance the spectator and player experience, making the Mitchell Athletic Complex one of the premiere sports field complexes in the New England Collegiate Conference.
