Cal Poly Beach Volleyball Facility

San Luis Obispo, CA

Project Description:

Wallace Group provided engineering, landscaping, and surveying services for the new Beach Volleyball Facility on the Cal Poly San Luis Obispo campus, south of Mott Gym. The project includes a 5-court sand area, a landscaped spectator zone, and renovations to the surrounding areas to better accommodate the additional traffic the facility will generate along with perimeter seating. The courts are contained by a combination of seat walls and retaining walls, creating a natural barrier between the play surface and walkways while permitting viewing from any angle around the courts. The transition from asphalt basketball courts to sand volleyball courts provided Wallace Group an opportunity to improve the drainage and stormwater runoff collection as well as update the site with new landscaping to better match the coastal aesthetic created by the new sand courts. This project was a successful collaboration of ideas, vision, and expertise among Cal Poly staff, athletic coaches, donors, contractor, and the design team. Wallace Group, as part of the design team, was able to help deliver this distinct facility on an expedited construction schedule.
