Hanson Stadium Roof Dedication

by Paige Viehouser

Pacific University dedicated the new roof covering Hanson Stadium’s seating on Saturday, September 6, 2014.  During half-time of the Pacific University Boxers’ season opener, the University recognized the generous donation of Rich and Joy Hanson that allowed for construction of the stadium roof. Covering 1,100 fans, the Hanson Stadium’s roof keeps fans comfortable year round for many sporting events including football, lacrosse, soccer and track events.

Catena provided structural engineering for the team, led by inici group and Walsh Construction. Close collaboration and creative structural solutions helped deliver this project in less than 6 months for the University. The rapid delivery did not compromise the Owner’s budget, even with escalating steel prices. Congratulations to the team!
