    UI Athletic Facilities Construction Update

    Aug. 21, 2000

    Masons continue to lay the brick exterior walls at the Irwin indoor football practice facility.

    Tranlucent panels will be installed atop the side walls to let in natural light.

    The south wall at the high end of the building will also allow plenty of light to enter the facility.

    Workmen are currently busy with the early stages of the roofing process.

    The view from the new outdoor practice field shows the camera platform that is being installed at the south end of the building.

    The view of the Eichelberger softball complex from right-center field shows that concrete workers are nearly finished building the dugouts and stands.

    A closer look at the first-base dugout.

    It won't be long before the playing field itself will be constructed.
