North Liberty Showcase Pavilion & Outdoor Performance Venue - Design & Engineering

As part of their Senior Design Capstone course, Civil & Environmental Engineering students will provide designs and costs estimates for a "Showcase Pavilion & Outdoor Performance Venue" in North Liberty's Centennial Park.

Students will provide an initial design, including concept plan, floor plan and cost estimate, for a showcase pavilion and outdoor performance venue in North Liberty’s established Centennial Park. The climate-controlled, pavilion will host community events and private rentals, including weddings and conferences, for up to 400 people year-round, offer a food-service area, restrooms and serve as a backstage and greenroom for the outdoor stage. The covered stage, in addition to serving as outdoor patio for the pavilion, will play host to variety of performances in the park, including community plays, festivals and nationally touring musicians, and be able to support a variety of supplemental sound, lighting and other production needs. The venue will artfully complement the surrounding parkland, home to the state’s largest bioswale.
