Johns Hopkins University, Baseball Field & Tennis Courts
Henry Adams provided the MEP engineering design for the complete renovation of the baseball and tennis facilities at the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus. The project upgraded the existing baseball field into a NCAA-caliber facility.
Overall, the project included turf field, NCAA level lighting, bleachers, press and VIP boxes, concession and restroom facilities and storage facilities. The project also included extension of the electrical service from the campus 15kV MV system as well as lighting for six NCAA level tennis courts and bleachers. Additionally, the scope included extension of the copper and fiber IT services from a local residence hall for phones and Internet access.
Design highlights of the project included cost analysis of Musco versus GE Sportscaster system, design of the public address system, multiple options for the MV service equipment, and several alternates to allow pricing to fall within fund-raising goals.
The mechanical scope included plumbing for concessions, restrooms, and storage areas. The electrical scope included power and vandal-proof lighting for the dugouts and storage rooms; power for the lift to the press box as well as the press box itself; power and vandal-proof lighting for concessions; power and vandal-proof lighting for the restrooms; power and vandal-proof lighting for storage areas; and power, sports lighting, raceway infrastructure, and power for speaker/communication network serving the playing field, bullpens, batting cages, and scoreboard.
