Work Commences at $6.5M Delavan Darien Athletic Complex
Scherrer Construction Co., Inc., a full-service general contractor and construction management firm, in partnership with Blue Design Group LLC and Point of Beginning, Inc., recently broke ground on a $6.5 million athletic complex for the Delavan-Darien School District.
The 8,000-square-foot athletic complex will feature a new synthetic turf multi-use football and soccer field, a new running track, expanded restrooms, concessions, team rooms and storage facilities, as well as reconfigured and reconstructed tennis courts. Work is also being completed to preserve the concrete bleacher structure, a sentimental community landmark. Parts of the original structure will remain, and new bleachers are also being installed.
Scherrer Construction assisted the Delavan-Darien School District with its referendum campaign to educate the community on the need to update the athletic complex, resulting in a passed referendum in November 2020. The new athletic complex meets WIAA compliance and positions Delavan-Darien competitively amongst neighboring school districts.
Delavan Darien School District staff gather on June 4th for a groundbreaking photo to officially kick off construction.
