VCSU Athletics Complex
Valley City State University
Over the course of the nearly 50 years that the W.E. Osmon Fieldhouse has been used, it has served Valley City State University as well as it could, but space needs, athletic program requirements, and University and community fitness needs currently cannot be adequately met.
A JLG study found that in order to best accommodate growth, fund raising, and athletic seasons, the resultant design solution was separated into three phases. The overall solution provides a new entry point toward main campus and 8th Avenue. Fitness and wellness components are placed in a new addition to the NW of the main building, and a grand entrance to the west and parking gives the facility presence. All new construction respects and aligns with the simple architecture of the Osmon dome.
