Sun Devil Stadium Renovation and Expansion

Tempe, Arizona


Client
Arizona State University

Project Overview
In collaboration with Gould Evans Architects, HNTB served as architect-of-record for the structural design, seating bowl, premium club seating and the interior of the new Carson Student-Athlete Center. HNTB designed the premium suites, clubs and seating areas that double as off-season event space.

Strategy
The $307 million renovation and expansion was done with phased construction, to allow for uninterrupted football seasons, and added premium club and suites designed to generate off-season revenue. The 800,000-sq. ft. stadium features a new seating bowl ringed by a new main concourse, secondary concourses that open to the playing field, modern concessions and restrooms, a beer garden, Sun Devil Deck and premium interior clubs and suites. 

Results
The project, which finished on time, enhances the game day experience and recruiting and creates the potential to generate revenue year-round. The new three-story, 103,000-sq. ft. Student-Athlete Center boasts everything to help student athletes succeed, save time in their daily schedules and minimize the need to travel across campus.
