Notre Dame selects Dimensional Innovations
April 14, 2014
The University of Notre Dame is launching a $400 million campus expansion centered around its iconic football stadium, and after an extensive competitive review that included design firms from around the country, Kansas City-based Dimensional Innovations (DI) won the project to provide Environmental Graphics Design Services.
“We were extremely impressed by the creativity that DI brought to the table during the interview process,” said Julie Boyton, Director of Interior Architecture at Notre Dame. “They listened to us and reinforced our own belief in a collaborative approach.”
Known as the “Campus Crossroads Project,” this is the single largest capital project ever at Notre Dame. Located in the heart of campus, the project calls for three new multi-disciplinary buildings attached to the east, west and south sides of the stadium. Fundraising is underway and construction is expected to begin within two years.
“It’s exciting to be a part of such a significant project,” says Justin Wood, Vice President and Sports Practice Director at Dimensional Innovations. “It’s significant not just for the University, but really represents a different way of thinking in the collegiate marketplace. Notre Dame has been committed to the pillars of faith, academics, athletics and student life, and the Campus Crossroads will be a physical manifestation of that commitment.”
Dimensional Innovations has become known for creating iconic experiences at stadiums, entertainment venues and in corporate settings. DI will create a world-class experience for all three buildings. Responsibilities include branding, theming, graphics and signage design.
“The Notre Dame brand is one of the finest academic brands in the world,” says Brett Posten, Chief Brand Officer at Dimensional Innovations. “Our team gets that. We know how to use a light touch. Whether in graphics, technology or branding, our goal is to create a world-class experience for this world-class brand.”
Dimensional joins a respected design team that includes Connecticut-based S/L/A/M Collaborative, Kansas City-based 360 Architecture, and Workshop Architects of Milwaukee.
