Charlie Kreye, PE
As a subconsultant to HKS Architects, Draper Aden Associates provided survey and site planning and engineering services including grading, erosion and sediment control, stormwater management, and utilities engineering for the new Indoor Practice Facility. The completed Virginia Tech Indoor Athletic Training Facility provides a full-sized, indoor NCAA regulation football field for the university’s football program and is suitable for other athletic programs including soccer and lacrosse. Support spaces and features include storage, convenience restrooms, videography platforms and audio / video systems. The Virginia Tech ITAF is constructed as a “punt facility” which provides 88-feet clear space along the mid-field axis and 72-feet clear along the sidelines. Additionally, Draper Aden provided construction phase service including subsurface utilities location, construction stake-out and site/civil site observation.
