Commercial Painting | College Of Saint Benedict Athletic Complex

In late 2017 and early 2018, Colorful Concepts was honored to work on a brand new Athletic Complex at the College of Saint Benedict in St. Joseph, MN! Part of the College Avenue Athletic Fields, this custom commercial project was a long-term project overall due to the number of athletic fields included, though our participation was limited to the complex and dugouts. Excavation for the fields began in Fall 2016.

The College of Saint Benedict Athletic Complex project went extremely smoothly. For more detailed and finished photos of the new Athletic Complex, visit the College of Saint Benedict website.

College of Saint Benedict Athletic Complex, St. Cloud, MN

The College of St. Benedict (CSB) is a four-year undergraduate college. It opened in 1913 growing out of St. Benedict’s Academy, which was founded by Saint Benedict’s Monastery in 1889. Under CSB’s and Saint John’s University’s partnership, students at the two colleges have a shared curriculum, and access to the resources of both campuses.

Located along College Avenue S., between Centennial Commons and the Renner House, the Athletic Complex opened in April with help from Colorful Concepts! The 14,000 square-foot facility houses two soccer fields, two softball fields, and three spaces for intramural sports and recreational activities. The Athletic Complex itself houses concession stands, four locker rooms, a training room and a press box for soccer, and is built to LEED Silver sustainable building standards.

Paint and primer was purchased from Sherwin-Williams for this project and customized to CSB’s specifications. We were able to match team colors exactly, and incorporate the new Saint Benedict logo, which replaced the previous Blazers logo and name, in use since 1976.


For this project, we utilized a team of eight professional painters. Painting brick, wood and steel, our team worked hard to make everything crisp and perfect. The Athletic Complex at CSB lives up to the reputation of the school, and represents the image they want to convey. Our team was able to contribute to that success.
