Virginia Tech students build field house for Clifton Forge little league

Posted: Updated:
Virginia Tech architect students are getting some hands on experience building a field of dreams for little league players in Clifton Forge.

The third year students designed and are now building a field house for the Clifton Forge Little League. They're pre-fabricating parts of the structure on campus and will move the pieces to Clifton Forge later this month to build.

These students are part of the same design/buildLAB that built the Covington Farmers Market in 2011 and the Clifton Forge Amphitheater in 2012.

It's a way to give students real world experience and help a local community. "Having a field house with a concession stand and rest rooms and pavilion for them to access opens up more opportunity for them, more tournaments for them and ease of practicing and playing," said student Ellie Burns.>

Students design and build during one academic year. They are under the guidance of Keith and Marie Zawistowski, both professors of practice in the College of Architecture and Urban Studies' School of Architecture + Design.
