Sited adjacent to atheletic fields and a skate park, The Harrison Field House is programmed to serve the general public (bathrooms, snack bar), the community (meeting room), the ASFU administration (offices and multi-purpose room), the maintenance staff (storage and maintenance areas), and the athletic teams (sports equipment storage and coach’s room).
The precious construction funds - mostly private donations raised by ASFU and supplemented by the City - were stretch to create not only the fields and park but also a field house. To control costs, the specified building materials are inexpensive and often donated. In addition, the building uses a simple, modular layout to cut down on waste and construction time. These factors contributed to completion below the $300,000 budget.
