Columbia College's R. Marvin Owens Field, Columbia, Mo.

Columbia College's R. Marvin Owens Field, Columbia, Mo.Brad Stegeman, architect at Simon Oswald Architecture Inc., specified metal roofs and brick for R. Marvin Owens Field at Columbia College to connect the design with the campus. "We wanted a unifying look on campus so we chose materials that matched the aesthetics of other structures on campus including a newly constructed science building nearby," he says. "We also chose the standing seam roof for its low maintenance and durability knowing that as part of a college these buildings would be there for a long time."

All-Spec Metal Systems LLC installed 7,900 square feet of Englert Inc.'s 24-gauge, 16-inchwide Series 2500 standing seam metal roof panels in Dark Bronze on a locker room building and concession stand building with overhangs.

The soccer field project features two sets of bleachers to seat 600 people, showers, laundry facilities and a press box in the locker room building. It is the primary recreation playing surface on campus and is used for intramurals sports, summer camps and soccer tournaments.
