The Equestrian Center and Parking Garage project includes an equestrian facility that contains both enclosed and covered open-air facilities. The enclosed facilities include an event arena, show arena, horse barn, and warm-up paddocks. The open-air facilities include covered warm-up areas. There is also a partially below-grade parking garage beneath the Equestrian Center. This parking garage will be accessible for the entire campus.
The Equestrian Center and Parking Garage are creating a place that honors our past for future generations, which is important to the local community. The project will house historic elements from throughout the campus. The design has the flexibility to host regional and national equestrian events of various disciplines throughout the year.
The Whiting-Turner Contracting Company will manage the construction of the Equestrian Center and Parking Garage project.
In conjunction with the Mayor’s Office of the National Western Center – Whiting-Turner has committed to developing and implementing a Workforce Pilot Program for the Equestrian Center and Parking Garage project, with the intent that it will help increase outreach, provide training, create job opportunities and provide employment opportunities for those in economically disadvantaged areas and populations. In addition, Whiting-Turner has also committed to addressing shortages in qualified construction workers by increasing the number of apprentices.
