Mount Pleasant Sports Complex

Location: City of Mount Pleasant, Texas

Project Managers: Hunter N. Rush, William Spencer, & Arthur Fagundes

MHS Planning & Design partnered with the City of Mount Pleasant to design and build The Mount Pleasant Sports Complex. MHS developed an accurate preliminary cost estimate totaling $6,991,891.21, managed multiple contractors and sub-consultants, and was the primary construction supervisor.

The project entailed soccer fields and goals, multi-purpose trails, nature trails, a disc golf course, bleachers, shade structures, a concession stand, restrooms, field lighting, a sprayground, a playground, horseshoe and washer pits, entry signs, landscaping, irrigation, and parking lots. It was imperative to continue to keep the lines of communication open during the design and construction of this project to ensure it was successful and a true benefit to the entire community. 

The Complex is innovative because it was one of the first sports complexes in East Texas that focused on the importance of the athletic fields AND the park itself. Nearly $3 million was spent on recreational amenities. This design allows the entire community to have access and utilize the site all year around, not just the youth soccer association.
