Hartman Arena in Park City, Kansas is more than 100,000 sq. ft. in size and was constructed using Architectural III wall panels from American Buildings Company and a Standing Seam 360 roof system.
Hartman was originally meant to seat 4,700 spectators for an indoor professional football team, the Wichita Wild. However, Hartman Arena now is a 6,500 seat, multi-purpose facility with 15 acres of parking that was built with the environment in mind. The building is subterranean (the seating bowl is located underground), which helps keep costs down for heating and cooling. The facility runs on electricity from a 150’ tall wind turbine when there are no events to further save on energy costs.
Recycled materials were used for the steel, insulation and plastics in the building. New, innovative recycling ideas are in place inside the arena, and carpoolers are rewarded with free parking at events.
The American Buildings Company Builder was Williams Construction, Inc. of Springfield, MO. The General Contractor was The Law Company, Inc. of Wichita, KS. The Architect was Law-Kingdon Architecture of Wichita, KS.
