MidAmerican Energy Company RecPlex
West Des Moines, IA
The MidAmerican Energy RecPlex is a multi-sport facility currently under design and construction for the Parks and Recreation Department in the City of West Des Moines. This facility will have over 300,000 conditioned square feet with 2 NHL-sized hockey rinks, 4 basketball courts, a regulation indoor turf soccer field with associated locker rooms, and support spaces. In addition, there is an eSports venue with the capacity for over 70 gaming systems, conference spaces, and indoor batting cages. Outside of the building, the 86-acre site will have parking and three outdoor artificial turf fields for soccer, lacrosse, or similar sports with room to add two additional outdoor fields and a third sheet of ice in the future.
This facility addresses the city's needs for a regional, indoor sports facility that provides year-round access to hockey, soccer, and basketball youth sports programs. It will also feature space for conventions, concerts, community and business meetings, corproate and private gatherings, and adaptive recreation.
During both design and construction, Shive-Hattery is providing Building Envelope Commissioning, managing a contract for Building Systems Commissioning, performing Construction Administration activities, and working with tenants to help facilitate the build-out of their shell spaces and developing a comprehensive signage package for both exterior and interior way finding.
