Amherst College

Pratt Field Renovation
and Expansion
Amherst, MA

Upon completion of a feasibility study, BGA designed a major renovation and expansion of Amherst College’s Pratt Field and Neuhoff-Lumley Track, the third-oldest NCAA football playing site in the nation. The design celebrates the rich history and tradition of the college: traditional Georgian brick, distinctive steeple elements and careful siting of buildings and landscaping to minimize the project’s visual impact on neighboring residences. Construction was completed in September 2013.
  • The new 2,500-seat stadium was re-oriented to better fit the overall campus layout and features a synthetic turf field; competition running track; larger, multi-level press box; spectator amenities and concessions
  • The expansion also includes a new 15,000 square-foot Field House with locker rooms, restrooms, training room and meeting facilities for the College’s Division III (NESCAC Conference) football team and men’s and women’s lacrosse teams, as well as visiting teams
