Notice of Requested Architectural and Engineering Services

Notice is hereby given of the commencement of the selection process for engineering and architectural services for the phased construction of a new stadium at Wichita State University.

The University Stadium project is a phased construction and demolition project for the replacement of Cessna Stadium on the Wichita State University campus. The stadium, at completion of a phased construction project, would seat approximately 10,000 spectators. Phasing has been developed around maintaining the spectator seating and other infrastructure required for the Wichita State Track and Field teams as well as the annual Kansas State High School Track and Field Championship. Demolition of the east stands of Cessna Stadium will be handled outside the scope of this project as a separate small capital project. Phase 1A/1B includes the improvements on the east side of the existing track (underground utility work, a bermed grass seating area seating for 2,390, new free-standing field lights, ticket pavilion, restroom/storage buildings, and plaza), a widened field to accommodate a regulation-sized soccer field, reconfiguration of the 8-lane track, as well as new aluminum bleacher seating at the north and south side of the track to seat a total of 3,460 spectators. Phase 2A/2B includes demolition of the existing west Cessna Stadium structure and construction of a new west stadium structure with seating for 4,190. The new west stadium would include a single level of press boxes and suites, offices/locker rooms/team room areas for a future soccer team, as well as restrooms, concessions, storage rooms, and a pedestrian plaza between Koch Arena and the new stadium to allow for food trucks, merchandise tents, and public space adjacent to the stadium.
