"We are thrilled that the superior design efforts of our design team have been recognized by the Society for Colleges and University Planning" -- Des Hague, Co-Founder of Hague Enterprises and Partner of WC&P.

Des Hague, Co-Founder of Hague Enterprises, LLC. and Partner of WC&P, is pleased to announce that WC&P's food service planning and design project at University of Cincinnati's Nippert Stadium has been awarded the prestigious 2016 SCUP Excellence in Architecture Award. The Society for Colleges and University Planning (SCUP) offers this awards program in order to recognize excellence in planning, design and implementation efforts of firms and institutions, as well as the achievements of individuals whose lives and passions involve higher education.

"It is exciting to have been a member of the design team on such an iconic venue," stated Hague. "We are thrilled that the superior design efforts of our team have been recognized by the Society for Colleges and University Planning."

The Capacity of 91-year-old Nippert Stadium has been increased from 35,097 to about 40,000 during this major $86 million renovation. UC has been playing football at that campus location since 1901, making it the second-oldest college football site in the nation behind only Penn's Franklin Field.

The Nippert Stadium renovation, designed by Architecture Research Office with Heery International, provides outstanding spectator facilities for viewing football games and integrates with the high-quality architecture and landscape of the University of Cincinnati campus.

With a food service budget of about $1.4 million, many upgrades were implemented. The stadium brought in all-new offerings of high-quality, local foods that stray from the traditional hot dog and nachos typically associated with sporting events. New menu offerings include New England Clam Chowder, crab cakes, pulled pork, sausage and pepper sandwiches, Philly cheese steak sandwiches and Jambalaya, just to name a few.

"We've made major changes to give fans the elevated, hospitality-centric service and experience they deserve and expect," said Steve Young, WC&P's Partner and Director of Design. "The fresh, tasty and healthy food offerings are relevant and celebrate the local heritage. We are confident that the completely overhauled service approach will deliver one-of-a-kind hospitality and be sure to excite the fans."
