    San Antonio ISD
    Construction Cost
    $35 Million
    Completion Date
    August 28, 2014

    The restoration of San Antonio Independent School District’s historic “rock pile,” Alamo Stadium, is an important piece of San Antonio history. Originally completed in 1940 on an old rock quarry, the stadium was in need of several upgrades to bring it up to modern building codes and comply with current ADA standards. While retaining its fundamental historic integrity, the design of the stadium renovations and upgrades included the restoration of stone walls, improved play areas, ADA accessibility, concessions, restrooms, locker rooms, sound system, security system, lighting, press box, scoreboard and storage. Spectator seating was replaced with new bench seating.

    The design of the site amenities includes new parking circulation and drop-off areas, as well as infrastructure upgrades including electrical, plumbing, storm drainage system, sidewalks, landscaping, irrigation and parking. At the west entrance, a new plaza was designed to provide additional circulation and vendor space on game days.

    Since 2011, the Alamo Stadium has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The restrictions to keep a historical status, drastic changes in ground elevations, unknown existing foundation and soil conditions, and unique project location, created challenges for the design and construction of the stadium upgrades, however the project was completed by the deadline and ready for the first game of the 2014-2015 season. The renovated facility is available as a multi-sport venue, including football, track and field, and soccer.

    Years of Experience: 10 years

    Number of years as a member of SMPS: 3 months

    Other organizations/affiliations/associations involved in: CEFPI

    Education background: Texas Tech University, BA – English/Technical Communication; minor in Spanish


    Why did you originally join SMPS and how has it benefitted you and your firm?

    I joined SMPS because I want to meet other marketing professionals in the industry and keep up to speed with the latest marketing trends. For CDS Muery, SMPS has allowed us to improve our internal communications and market our firm more effectively. PR and Marketing are crucial for success! We are always looking to partner with other firms on government RFQs so SMPS has been a great venue to allow us to meet possible teaming partners.

    What are you interests and hobbies outside of work?

    I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, traveling, and going to movies. I also love to be outdoors and take long walks with my 7-month old daughter Cambelle and dog Luna. My husband and I are building a modern home in the country – we are building it ourselves so that takes up most of our free time!

    How did you get into the A/E/C industry?

    I worked for a large consulting firm as a contractor for the Air Force Civil Engineering Agency at Lackland AFB. I traveled to military construction and renovation projects at various air force bases around the US and promoted them through newsletters and press releases. This opened the door to a great opportunity to come work for CDS Muery. It’s a great fit! At a smaller firm, I’m able to get involved in more activities and broaden my skill set.
