Holuba Hall Turf To Be Replaced For $1.25 Million This Summer

One of Penn State’s most used athletic facilities will receive its first turf replacement since 2003. Holuba Hall is scheduled to get a renovation this summer according to documents from the Office of Physical Plant’s website.

The entire cost of the renovation is expected to be $1.25 million. The removal of the turf is scheduled to begin on April 25 and will last about two months. This part of the project will cost $500,000. At the completion of the turf’s removal, the new turf will be installed for an estimated $750,000. This part of the process will begin on June 27.

Holuba Hall, which is used primarily as the indoor training facility of the football team, was built in 1987. The turf replacement will be the latest of the many renovations at Holuba Hall – including replacement of lighting, painting the interior, and an installation of interior filming platforms.

Many other teams use the facility during the cold winter months in Happy Valley. Like baseball coach Rob Cooper frequently says, “it’s 70 degrees and sunny in Holuba.” The next event for the facility is a Penn State men’s lacrosse game on Saturday at 3 p.m.
