Macalester College Partners with Haldeman-Homme to Help Create State of the Art Athletic Facility
“I was very happy with the service. I willingly recommend them to other schools“
– Ron Osterman, Assistant Director of Athletics
After a good recommendation from other schools and a product offering that fit their needs, Macalester College decided to partner with Haldeman-Homme. The Minneapolis based company provided athletic products and lockers throughout the facility.
The field house was outfitted with Porter Athletic Equipment including tennis equipment, gymnasium backstops, and an electrically raised perimeter curtain allowing for simultaneous use of the track and infield. Gill Athletics takeoff boards, landing systems, hurdles, throwing circles, and aluminum pole vault pit cover provide for a safe and multiuse facility. Ron Osterman, Assistant Director of Athletics was very happy with the results, “the best move we made was to use Porter equipment…to keep the tennis, track, softball, and baseball coaches all happy with one facility is great.”
Included in the facility’s construction was a new competition court. Haldeman-Homme provided additional Porter Athletic Equipment including 14 flexible basketball hoops, 4 electrically raised divider curtains, an overhead supported volleyball system, and gymnasium backstops.
Haldeman-Homme also installed Debourgh student and varsity athletic lockers throughout the facility. Ron Osterman was so impressed with Haldeman-Homme’s service and expertise that he has willingly recommended them for related projects at other schools. Throughout the entire process the Haldeman-Homme team worked closely with general contractor McGough Construction and Macalester College representatives to complete the project on time and within budget.
