It’s a big day at CDFL! This morning we unveiled our new and improved website as well as our recently launched social media presence to the entire team. Featuring past and current project case studies, an introduction to the CDFL team, and a frequently updated news section, the revamped site provides a more informative and interactive visitor experience.
To guarantee you don’t miss out during this exciting time at CDFL, be sure to follow us on Twitter and LinkedIn and like us on Facebook. We’ll be posting lots of great stuff – updates on projects, links to case studies, a weekly Meet the Team feature (or, as we like to say, the “us” in the Power of Plus), and much more.
Focus on Engineering: JSU College of Science, Engineering and Technology
January 17, 2013
Increasingly, some of the most sought-after professionals have degrees in engineering. From labs to design firms, engineers are playing key roles in organizations and, more broadly, in our national economy. That’s why it’s critical that our colleges and universities invest in the training and education of the next generation of engineers.
CDFL has had the opportunity to design five engineering facilities over the past 25 years – most recently designing the College of Science, Engineering and Technology at Jackson State University in Jackson, MS.
In every education facility CDFL designs, we plan carefully to maximize the student experience. The College of Science, Engineering and Technology incorporates transparent finishes to expose various construction levels, and also includes two-story laboratories to allow for viewing of testing and teaching processes from above.

Project Update: Alexander Field’s first game set for March 19th
January 13, 2013
We’re excited about the imminent completion of Purdue University’s new baseball stadium, Alexander Field. CDFL was awarded the project in 2008, and designed a 2,542-seat stadium that includes an indoor hitting facility, TV facilities and a pedestrian plaza linking the stadium to a new soccer venue.
We have worked carefully to design a stadium that blends seamlessly into the existing campus style – something we did with the University of Mississippi’s baseball stadium as well. In our initial planning, we worked closely with coaches, the athletic department, stadium personnel and university administration to ensure that all needs were met.
Already, fans have purchased over 400 season tickets to watch the defending Big Ten conference champions.
We may not be from Indiana, but come March 19, CDFL will be pulling for the Boilermakers!
