Notice of Hearing

Pursuant to K.S.A. 76-7,131(e), on behalf of the Kansas Board of Regents, Wichita State University gives notice that the state educational institution procurement committee will conduct a public hearing at 11:00 a.m. Monday, March 4, 2024, in Room #261 of the Rhatigan Student Center, 1845 Fairmount St., #56, Wichita, Kansas. Visitor parking is available in the parking garage located south of the Rhatigan Student Center off WuShock Drive.

The purpose of the hearing is for the public to have an opportunity to comment on a request from Wichita State University to utilize Construction Management At-Risk (CMAR) alternate project delivery method as authorized by the state educational institution project delivery construction procurement act (K.S.A. 76-7,125 et seq.) for the Wilkins Stadium Expansion Phase 1 project.

The Wilkins Stadium Expansion Phase 1 project is part of a larger master plan for the existing 5,500 square foot softball stadium that was built in 1998. Phase 1 will be split into two sub-phases to maintain access to the existing outdoor batting cages during construction. Phase 1A of construction is a new indoor practice facility (approximately 14,400 gross square feet) to be located on the west side of the stadium adjacent to the Heskett Center. The indoor practice facility includes a full infield, nets to divide the field into batting cages, and a storage area. Phase 1B is a team facility (approximately 12,000 gross square feet) that will be built immediately south of and contiguous to the indoor practice facility. The team facility will include a new locker room, coach’s locker room, classroom, team room, athletic training room, staff offices, break room, work room, and team laundry room.

Construction costs are estimated at $7.4 million.
