Eastern Washington is moving ahead in its fundraising plan for a renovated football stadium. EWU announced Thursday that for its predesign services it has hired ALSC Architects of Spokane, a firm that will address “possible enhancements” for students and fans at Roos Field. According to an EWU news release, the privately funded improvements “could include expanded seating and improved amenities such as concessions and restrooms.” ALSC designed Washington State’s Cougar Football Complex, Gonzaga’s McCarthey Athletic Center and dozens of other notable buildings in the region. EWU said it hopes to have the predesign work completed no later than January. “One aspect of this process is to learn what components of a stadium renovation we can realistically do, in what order, based on the funds available at the time,” EWU athletic director Lynn Hickey said in the news release. “Feedback from our supporters will be critical as we develop a winning business plan.” Hickey told The Spokesman-Review on Thursday that more seating, improved fan amenities, restrooms, concessions, athletic offices, and training facilities are a focus of the project, which she said would likely be done in phases. -Ryan Collingwood, Spokesman-Review, Read More
