Iowa State University Stadium Renovation and ExpansionAmes, Iowa
HNTB, in association with Neumann Monson Architects, completed a new $55 million south end zone addition to Jack Trice Stadium at Iowa State University. The project replaced and expanded the existing end zone with more than 13,000 additional seats bringing the stadium capacity to more than 61,000 seats. New upper and lower bowls were designed to seamlessly integrate within the existing structure to provide an enclosed environment to the seating bowl. The lower seating bowl features 3,000 clubs seats. Directly behind the club seats is the first two-story endzone club in collegiate sports.
The Sukup End Zone Club provides two separate 15,000-square-foot lounge areas, each uniquely branded, that are stacked on top of each other and connected by a large, open central staircase. Each lounge has a combination of bars and concessions areas, and are design to host a variety of functions throughout the year. A new concourse, with new concessions and restrooms also was added, connecting the east and west concourses of the stadium. Additionally, a new 40-foot tall and 150-foot long scoreboard was added. The south end zone project sits prominently along University Boulevard and has become a front door to the University.
