Home to the Mesa State Mavericks college football team, Stocker Stadium in Grand Junction, Colo. is the most highly used field on the Western Slope, hosting as many as four football games a weekend. Kiewit also constructed new high hump, long jump and triple jump areas with polyurethane track to complete the facility.
Constructed in a tight area next to a major corridor on the Clarkson College campus, this fast-track project was completed in 11 months. The fully furnished suites have four bedrooms, two bathrooms, a living room, kitchen and voice, data and cable access. Laundry facilities and a storm shelter are located on the lower level.
