Facilities of this type have traditionally been constructed using pre-engineered frames and either metal, masonry, or combination of both, exterior skins. The indoor field had to have a clear span of 200 ft and a clear minimum height of 65 ft. Clayco Construction Company of St. Louis, Missouri toured existing facilities in several major cities and came to the conclusion that a tilt-up exterior could provide a more durable and economical facade.
The architectural concept incorporates reflective glass block, rustication bands, a multi-colored paint scheme, and varying panel thicknesses to create depth and vertical features. The project was 158,000 square feet and included locker room/training areas and general offices. The tallest continuous panels were 69 ft in height.
