University of Wisconsin - Green Bay Kress Center

The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay wanted to expand their student athletic facility to accommodate an increased demand of services with the university’s recent NCAA Division 1 status. The expansion included a new performance gymnasium with stadium seating, practice gym, turf gym, exercise room with indoor track, increased parking capacity, and stormwater management features.

GRAEF provided site/civil engineering, landscape architecture, wetland permitting and survey services. GRAEF landscape architects worked with the design team to develop a master plan that meets the needs of the university and fits the natural character of the campus. The plan incorporated sustainable, “green” features, such as native plantings and storm water management facilities and included a large assembly plaza between the main entrance and patron dropoff, campus connections, accent plantings, landscape berming, parking, and groves of trees to help anchor the building onto the site.
