JQ Provides Structural Engineering for Stadium in Houston
HOUSTON — The Houston office of JQ has provided structural engineering services for Caress Stadium at Helfman Field, located on The Emery/Weiner School’s 15-acre campus in southwest Houston at 9825 Stella Link Road. Construction was completed in March. The completion of Caress Stadium is part of the school’s Champions Campaign, a capital campaign with the goal of raising $20 million by 2020 to enrich academic programs, extend tuition assistance and to expand facilities to accommodate growth in its athletics and arts programs. The Caress Stadium fieldhouse project includes locker rooms, a weight room, ticket booth, concessions and support functions on the first level, along with a film deck, press box and mechanical mezzanine on the second level. There is also an on-site storage building adjacent to the field along with two wing wall structures on each end of the bleachers that will seat more than 500 spectators.
