Galena High School Baseball Stadium and Events Plaza

Licata Hansen Associates Architecture created a Master Plan and designed the Press Box and Plaza Entry for a proposed Events Plaza on the Galena High School Campus. In 2009/2010 Galena Baseball moved into the remodeled and upgraded Baseball Stadium. THe High School is using the promotional video LHAA created to raise money to complete the facility.

"Very professional, accommodating, and responsive to suggestions and cost factors. They did a wonderful job of explaining the costs and needs of the site being improved. Matt did a great job creating ways to market the concept to our population. There was great thought put into the design and theme of our school. In such a tumultuous market Matt was able to create a cost line by line with flexibility for inflation or high rates. They were able to create 2d and 3d models and images that placed the design concept in the existing area, that is simply an excellent WOW factor." Shaun Finnigan Vice Principal, Galena High School
