Project Description

Marcus Welcome Center is a 29,400 SF facility located on the campus of Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. It is a multi-use facility consisting of two levels above ground as well as a basement that is used to store the golf carts for the campus golf course. The building is used for receptions, banquets, lectures and small presentations in the 100 seat auditorium. The architect for the project was McCluggage, VanSickle & Perry of Wichita, Kansas. The general contractor was Key Construction, Inc. also of Wichita, Kansas.

Sinclair Masonry, Inc. is a medium sized masonry contractor in Wichita, Kansas that primarily works in the commercial building industry focusing on educational, religious, financial, and retail structures. We employ approximately 65 masons, tenders, and operators with an office staff of two, and have been in operation for seven years.

The project consisted of installing 4,400 8" CMU, 132,000 modular brick, and 875 pieces of cast stone, many weighing as much as 900 pounds. It required 11,807 man hours to complete from September of 2004 through May of 2005. The project foreman for Sinclair Masonry, Inc. was Alan Hanson. Alan performed all on-site activities including supervision of all men, material inventory, equipment needs, material ordering for the general contractor, and a small amount of actual laying. The project was a model for cooperation between the owner, architect, general contractor, and subcontractors. It was finished on time with few change orders attributed mainly to this cooperative spirit.

“We are a passionate group that can solve challenges through our dedication.”
