Spectator Seating For Lacrosse; Roe Stamps Field
Donate Now to honor Inspirational Leader Alex Kiehl
Projected opening 2016
After six months of construction, the Roe Stamps Field was reopened in January 2014 following an initial phase of renovation. In addition to installing a new artificial surface and advanced lighting, the Field now boasts one of the largest storm water retention systems on campus, allowing ground water to be syphoned off and reused, a $4 million project in total.
The second phase of renovations will address two key remaining elements: the spectator experience and the need for equipment and team storage. The seating concept is intended to be modular and expandable for future growth. It faces the Lacrosse field but will be available for other non-lacrosse uses as well.
Phase II will consist of a freestanding, painted concrete masonry storage facility with a prefabricated aluminum seating above. A dedicated surface for videography will be engineered into the stands to accommodate broadcast live streaming of events without vibration. The bleacher seating will have an exterior lift (elevator) to be ADA compliant. The storage facility below will house four secure units with roll-up doors, which will be available for multiple sports club usage in addition to Lacrosse, each unit will have lighting and a sprinkler system and can be subdivided into 4 secure areas.
The institute has agreed to fund half the cost of the project and can begin construction as soon as the remaining funds are raised. Planned opening is for the 2016 season. Men's Lacrosse has taken the lead on this project and upon success will name the new facility to honor former team member Alex Kiehl.

Fund Raising to construct spectator seating on Roe Stamps Field at Georgia Tech to honor former Lacrosse player Alex Kiehl underway! The facility is planned to be available for 2016 season with 67% of fundraising completed as of December 15, 2014.
The effort is being driven by Georgia Tech Lacrosse Alumni and Parents following a recently completed $4 million reconstruction of the Roe Stamps Facility to include new playing surface, lighting and an extensive water management system.
The second phase of renovations will address two key remaining elements: the spectator experience and the need for equipment storage. The seating concept is intended to be expandable for future growth. It faces the Lacrosse field but will be available for other non-lacrosse uses as well.
For more than twenty years the lacrosse team has given an award in Alex’s name to an outstanding freshman player who exhibited Alex’s love of lacrosse, his love for his teammates, and unselfish team play.
Georgia Tech Lacrosse alumni also fund a scholarship in Alex’s name of which there have been over twenty-five recipients.Now the Georgia Tech Lacrosse Alumni Affinity Group, team parents, and the greater lacrosse community desire to make a contribution to permanently commemorate Alex and his ideals.
