Plans are in the works for the construction of a new women’s soccer training facility on the main campus of Colorado State University.
Early estimates indicate that the structure, which will also be shared by the women’s softball program, could cost as much as $6.5 million to build.
As planned the structure, which will go up east of the school’s Moby Arena, will house locker rooms, restrooms, team meeting space, and concessions.
A Request for Interest issued by the school also notes that the facility will include fan seating space.
In launching the preliminary stages of the project, school officials have approved spending $300,000 for a design and construction plan for the new facility.
That $300,000 will be paid for through an extension of a per semester student fee of just over five dollars. With a current enrollment of around 34,000 students, that works out to around $170,000 in revenue per semester.
The construction schedule for the new facility as outlined in the RFI document envisions a sixth-month design phase lasting until the fall of 2020, with actual construction beginning shortly afterwards and mostly likely wrapping by the summer of 2021.
