Re: Boston College Master Plan

The height of the building is 65 feet.

http://www.bc.edu/alumni/priorities/...ieldhouse.html

Too low for punting.

Translucent windows keep people from peeking in on practice.

BC was willing to pay for brick at the new ballfield(s) which is/are largely hidden, but this looks cheap and is prominently located and very visible on the main campus.

Re: Boston College Master Plan

Maybe the field level is below ground?

I believe BC has had drainage problems in that part of the campus, so going below grade would probably require constant de-watering.


Holy Cross, height to bottom of trusses unknown, but those are actual players lined up. Jeez, those are huge trusses.


Virginia Tech height to bottom of trusses is 86 feet


Bryant height to bottom of trusses 38 feet


Boston College, supposedly 65 feet

Re: Boston College Master Plan

This part of the BC campus is literally build on an infilled reservoir so it's not too surprising they have flood issues. The field house actually has a big under ground stormwater system (It's in the pnf, but you have to track it down http://www.bostonplans.org/getattach...2-653b56760850 ) so it should be helping with that.

Looks like the work on the ball fields has been completed.

Man, the advent of high-quality artificial turf over the last 10-15 year is such an unsung revolution and has made so many facilities like this so much nice than they otherwise would be.

Lack of dirt infield makes the purists cringe.

Re: Boston College Master Plan

I know there are advantages, but I think the fact that we've replaced grass with plastic pretend grass says a lot about who we are.
