Houston — The Houston office of JQ has provided structural engineering services for the Caress Stadium at Helfman Field, located on The Emery/Weiner School’s 15-acre campus in Southwest Houston. Construction was completed last month.
According to JQ’s Partner John Hoenig, PE, LEED AP, “We have significant expertise in providing collaborative structural design services for sports and recreation facilities for both public and private educational clients. It’s been a pleasure to work with the Emery/Weiner school and other project team members.”
The completion of Caress Stadium amenities represents a major milestone in the school’s Champions Campaign, a capital campaign with the goal of raising $20 million by 2020 to enrich academic programs, extend tuition assistance and to expand facilities to accommodate growth in its athletics and arts programs.
The Caress Stadium fieldhouse project includes locker rooms, weight room, ticket booth, concessions and support functions on the first level along with a film deck, press box and mechanical mezzanine on the second level. There is also an on-site storage building adjacent to the field along with two wing wall structures on each end of the bleachers that will seat more than 500 spectators.
