Klingner provided professional services to Burlington Community School District and the Purple and Grey Foundation for the renovation of the historic Bracewell Stadium.
Bracewell Stadium was the first stadium west of the Mississippi equipped with lighting for the playing of night games. After this project, it was the first high school stadium in the country equipped with LED lighting.
In addition to new lighting, an accessible parking lot and press box with private coaching suites and a hospitality area were added to the west side of the stadium. Spectators now enjoy direct access to new toilet rooms, a concession stand with live game feed video monitors, and a VIP seating area. New entrances to the north and south not only welcome visitors to the stadium, but provide security and crowd control for those entering and exiting.
Once inside the stadium, spectators are treated to beautifully landscaped areas, paved walkways, retaining walls, a water feature with integrated lighting, and a new state-of-the-art digital score board with a video screen. Players now have an artificial playing surface on the field, which is sized for high school football and NCAA soccer. Both the field and warmup area are adorned with the school’s colors and logo.
