Dalzell Stadium

Dubuque Community Schools

In partnership with Straka Johnson Architects, Wold has been working with Dubuque Community Schools for more than 14 years. In 2009 our team was retained by the District to complete a district-wide facility master plan for analyzing their facility needs for the next 10-15 years. One of the first projects identified for the implementation by the Board was the renovation of Dalzell Field. Located on the campus of Dubuque Senior High School, Dalzell Field is a sports complex utilized as the home field for both DSHS and Dubuque Hempstead High School.

The objectives laid out by the District for this project were to preserve the sentimental location of the field, match the gothic style of the adjacent high school, expand the track from six to eight, double the capacity of the bleachers and install a synthetic turf field - all within the tight, topographically challenging confines for the existing site. Other elements of the project include:

  • Press box
  • Home and visitors' locker rooms
  • Improved sightlines
  • Improved parking and traffic flow
  • Ticket booths
  • Concessions
