Clemson’s Kingsmore Stadium Renovations Delayed

kingsmore_stadium3_1000On Friday, The Greenville News reported that the renovations scheduled for Clemson’s Doug Kingsmore Stadium has been delayed due to a discrepancy in the cost of the project. 

Radakovich has spearheaded a $154 million campaign to renovate and augment Clemson’s athletic facilities. The campaign included upgrades to Doug Kingsmore Baseball Stadium.

The dugouts will be moved closer to the baselines and approximately 150 seats will be added. A clubhouse and viewing deck will be constructed adjacent to the locker rooms along the first base side. The facility will include meeting space, a dining area, offices and a players’ lounge.

Construction was planned to start earlier this summer. Yet Radakovich said once the contractor joined the project, he discovered a discrepancy between the actual cost of the project and the funds allocated for it. Consequently, construction has been delayed until later this month.

Radakovich said that the new seats will be installed and some of the functional parts of the new clubhouse should be available for use by the start of the 2015 season. He asserted that the playing field and stands will not be affected by the construction.
