Milwaukee Public Schools, Custer Stadium

Milwaukee Public Schools invested in a major renovation of Custer Stadium on the north side of Milwaukee. The two structurally sound poured concrete stadium buildings constructed in 1957 were showing years of wear and tear and were not ADA accessible. American Design Inc. (ADI) prepared design documents to renovate these buildings fitting them with new access ramps, platforms and seating for full ADA compliance. Below the east structure seating team lockers, coaches and officials rooms and restrooms were renovated, plumbing and lighting fixtures replaced and ADA access addressed. The west building scope was similar but its press box was completely stripped and refinished inside and out and a LULA elevator was added for ADA access. Three small new buildings were constructed. A precast storage building along with two ticket and concessions gatehouses which mark the stadium entrances to each side of the field. A new multi‐purpose synthetic turf field for high school level football and soccer was installed as well as new field lighting and sound system. Again, fencing was replaced with secure monumental fencing and piers.
