Russellville Multi-Purpose Facility

The Russellville School District’s Multi-Purpose Facility is a pre-fabricated metal building that houses an indoor turf training area, weight room, locker rooms, coaches offices, training rooms, meeting rooms, and a player’s lounge. VHC had no recordable accidents during this project, which occurred during the period in which the company earned Associated Builders and Contractor's (ABC) Diamond STEP Award. ABC also awarded VHC with a 2019 Excellence in Construction Award for Pre-Engineered Buildings.


Facility Overview

The 55,000 square feet facility is located to the northeast of Cyclone Stadium on a previously empty lot. This location allowed for a bridge and sidewalk to be built in order to connect the stadium to the Multi-Purpose Facility and grant easy access for students and coaches. The facility is framed by a variety of trees and green spaces that are synonymous with the Arkansas River Valley.
Inside the facility, visitors find a turf room, a state-of-the-art weight and training facility, a medical trianing room, coaches offices, multiple locker rooms, dual filming platforms, and designated meeting spaces.
The sheer size of the turf room is one of the facility’s most notable features. The room allows for a 50-yard field and end zone, plus a separate track and field training area that includes six running lanes and a pole vault lane with a landing pad. The above consideration makes the facility suitable for a number of student organizations, including football and soccer teams, as well as track and field athletes.
