Henderson Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing and fire and life safety design services for this approximately 120,000 SF, $10.5 million new indoor practice facility at Missouri Western State University in St. Joseph, Missouri. Key components of this project included an indoor sports facility and athletic department offices along with separate grass practice fields, concession building and maintenance building.
The indoor facility has been designed to hold a full-size football field that is used by the Kansas City Chiefs for their yearly summer Training Camp, but is primarily used for practices by the football, baseball and softball departments of Missouri Western State University. In addition, the indoor facility has the ability to be used for St. Joseph community events and provides great flexibility for the University. The facility also includes a hydrotherapy room, locker rooms, weight training room, conference rooms, laundry facility and restrooms.
