Cal State San Marcos Sports Center

When California State University San Marcos athletics gained NCAA Division II status, a facility with the stately permanence of an aspiring athletic program was desired. The university initiated a Field House expansion project to complement existing buildings on the CSUSM campus while featuring design elements that evoke motion, action, excitement and power. A combination of formliner types and selective sandblasting helped to articulate the design vision. Tilt-up concrete construction kept the project within its tight budget and schedule constraints. The 26,563-square-foot facility was built in 11 months, with exceptional finish construction. Creating this highly visible facility helps foster pride and promotes a greater sense of community on campus for current students while providing alumni with increased opportunities to reconnect with their alma mater. Equally important, it serves as a center of entertainment, athletics and educational programming to the entire region.
