Sam Baugh Indoor Practice Facility, TCU
This TCU facility provides an enclosure over the existing 80 yard practice field (Hahnfeld Hoffer Stanford designed the original outside football practice field), along with auxiliary support services and a restroom concession area. Its building system is a pre-engineered building shell with a Collegiate Beaux Art aesthetic skin. Translucent wall panels were incorporated to increase the natural light inside, and a large storage area provided for an extensive inventory of large equipment.
The building was designed so A/C can be added at a later date and it’s drainage system allows the field to be completely washed down. Three elevated catwalk stations have been provided, allowing personnel to videotape practices for planning and training purposes.
