The Project consists of a qualified Vendor (company) to provide and deliver a Custom Infrared or Lava Rock “Free Standing” Sauna.   If installation is provided this would be an alternate bid price for the Vendor to provide for this service. The Sauna is expected to be built out of traditional “sauna wood” material (Varied product proposals accepted).

The intent of this facility addition is to provide a high quality, cost effective, long life and ease of maintenance Infrared or Lava Rock Sauna for the Harrisonville Community Center.  


•    The size of the Commercial Infrared or Lava Rock Free Standing Sauna will be “approximately” 8’5”-foot-wide by 7’5”-foot-long(depth) by 7’ or 8’ foot tall.

•    Capability to be left on for 15 plus hours, reset at fewer hours is acceptable. 

•    This Sauna will be placed in an Indoor Pool Area (Natatorium). A computer screen will be a problem with the moisture, so an alternate heat control component is requested.
