The award-winning facility provides the latest in custom practice spaces for the university’s athletic teams, and includes a full-size indoor football field, 6,000 feet of rubber track, pole vault pits, and softball hitting tunnels as well as equipment storage, offices, restrooms, and meeting spaces for student athletes.  This facility is an integral part of the expansion of student recreation programming and intermural sports at UB and will also be used to house University events.

Project Details

The Murchie Fieldhouse is a 92,000 square foot structure that is large enough to house a full indoor football field with the ability to kick field goals.

The pre-engineered metal structure was complex, incorporating a 210-foot clear span, insulated wall panels, horizontally installed formed metal wall panels, aluminum composite panels and Kalwall translucent panels.
