HNTB served as the Architect of Record in partnership with design architect MANICA Architecture, project manager CAA ICON, and Mortenson & McCarthy Joint Venture (MMcJV), collaborating to bring this modern multipurpose stadium to life.
HNTB continued a nearly 30-year relationship with the NFL’s Raiders in developing, documenting and delivering Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas. The stadium was built from the ground up and completed within 42 months, pencils up to hammers down, and delivered on-time and under budget. Ultra-modern features create a high-tech, iconic structure that takes its place of prominence on the famed Las Vegas Strip.
State-of-the-art features include a retractable natural grass playing field that, when moved inside the stadium, provides outdoor event space for fans. A translucent ETFE roof allows illumination by natural light while protecting fans from the desert heat and glaring sun. The structure includes technology that allows for complete and uninterrupted connectivity for every person in the stadium and their devices.
Designed to make game day a daylong event for fans and families, the stadium includes such high-end entertainment venues as a 55,000 square foot lounge and viewing area in one end zone with an 80-foot-tall, 200-foot-wide set of operable lanai doors that open to a view of the famous Strip, and a nightclub just beyond the end zone that opens onto the field.
