San Antonio Independent School District’s Alamo Stadium was originally constructed by the Works Progress Administration in 1939 and is a Nationally Registered Historic Landmark. The facility affectionately known by locals as “The Rockpile” is currently used as a competition field and gymnasium for high schools throughout the San Antonio area.
This project consisted of renovation of the entire stadium and basketball arena as well as required demolition, code required upgrades and facility improvements. Renovations were made to the athletic track and field, stadium seats, press box, locker rooms, rest room facilities, and athletic offices. Special care went into the restoration of the original wood bleachers and historic stadium features, including the grand entrance, the locally quarried rock, and several artistic elements discovered within the original walls of the façade.
Major renovations included the restoration of all existing limestone, as well as replacing all mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems throughout the facilities.
