Total renovation of Arizona State University's football stadium is taking place over four years. This fast-tracked, phased, joint venture is being constructed in separate phases over four football off-seasons without disruptions to stadium operations.
Phase 1 created a new student seating section and concourse in the south end zone, bringing in the necessary infrastructure for the facility.
Phase 2 included 490,000 square feet of work focused on the west and north sides of the stadium, providing two new concourses, new concessions/restrooms, and three new premium club/suite areas. This phase also began work at the north end of the stadium (complete with a kitchen, operation center, loading area and back-of-house operations area). During this phase, with a peak workforce of 617 our team had to construct what would be the production equivalent of two average homes a day for 265 days straight to arrive at game day.
Phase 2a completes the north end zone with more new seating, the Sun Deck Terrace, and a new Student Athlete Facility that with football lockers and a lounge, an auditorium, meeting rooms, a weight room, a training room, a training table area and recruiting room, and Tillman Tunnel. This phase not only improves the fan experience, but elevates an aging facility to the most technologically advanced stadium in college football.
Phase 3 work will focus on the east side of the stadium, creating a new main and upper concourse and a new east sideline club. By next year, the stadium will have 785 wireless access points, 273 antennas and feature a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi network, which will significantly improve communications for the teams, fans and media.
