Martensdale – St. Marys Football Facility

Martensdale, Iowa

Confluence began working with the Martensdale Community School District (MSTM) on a planning exercise to determine future needs of the district. This exercise included a number of public meetings and many planning options. This project was unique because MSTM is a consolidated school district. We had two separate communities within the district; each with their own agenda to bring the facilities to their respective community. After looking at all the options, and garnering consensus, the District purchased additional property and prepared a campus master plan. Once the plan was complete, we moved forward with the design of Phase I – the Athletic Complex.

Confluence led the district through the decision making process to determine the viability of synthetic turf as well as what type of track surface to install. Upon completion, the MSTM football team played their homecoming game on a fieldturf surface in front of the largest crowd to see a game in MSTM history. This project means more to the district than just an Athletic Complex project – it creates a place that both the City of Martensdale and the City of St. Marys are proud to call their own.
