Community High School District 99 commissioned Wight & Company to provide the overall site master plan, architecture, engineering, estimating, and construction management for the construction of new athletic facilities at Downers Grove North High School. The goals were to improve the safety of the school’s outdoor environment, enhance the physical education programming, and maximize the use of the limited space. We provided Master Planning services that included a new turf athletic field, running track, field event area, natural turf soccer field, varsity softball field with dugouts, and a 400-stall parking lot. With our improvements and the addition of synthetic turf, Downers Grove North was able to quadruple the amount of time they use the space.
