Client Needs

GDK has built a relationship with West Ottawa over the last decade through some smaller opportunities to build trust and show our capabilities. Then when this opportunity for a new Athletic Stadium came up, West Ottawa quickly knew where to turn and that GDK Construction had the experience and knowledge to get this premier facility built before the next football season.

"Our students now have the privilege to compete in one of Michigan's top-tier complexes. With increased interest in lacrosse, football, and soccer, this facility serves as a hub for our community's youth, spanning from elementary to high school student-athletes."
Jeff Malloch, Assistant Superintendent of Business Services

Project Solution

West Ottawa Public Schools aimed to create a premier stadium complex in West Michigan to address capacity issues and programming limitations. Located near the high school, the complex offers two synthetic turf fields, an 18×30-foot video board, and a central tunnel for the home team’s entrance. The design provides an intimate spectator experience, removes the track for closer viewing, and includes upgraded amenities. The versatile venue attracts the community and enhances athletic events for all West Ottawa sports.

“This is an absolute game-changer. Having the turf field changes the way our athletes can train.”- Bill Kennedy, West Ottawa Athletic Director

The Athletic Complex also won the American Sports Builders Association (ASBA) 2023 multi-field facility of the year honor! Read the article here.
