Imagine the possibilities of a building and then multiply it ten times. Delivering beyond the expected is how 10Fold Architecture and Engineering approaches every project.

Saydel CSD Athletic Complex

“I have found 10Fold to be responsive to our needs, collaborative in their approach to the design work, and solution focused in all phases of a project.”
-Dr. Brad Buck, Former Supt of Saydel CSD, Current Director of the Iowa Department of Education

Phase I Completed 2010. Located in an industrial area on the north side of Des Moines, this athletic complex allows the Saydel Community School District to achieve its own identity through the programs that it supports. The district’s vision for a contemporary athletic facility is indicative of the progressive mentality of the community, and this four-structure addition to the high school campus is the realization of that vision.

Phase II Completed 2014. Building on the success of the Phase I development, Phase II provided football bleachers, a press box, synthetic turf, track modifications and site beautification. The home and visitor bleachers flipped sides to create a better spectator experience for the home-side fans.
