Project Overview

Sundt and a joint venture partner performed a total renovation of Arizona State University’s football stadium, phased over four years during football off-seasons without disruption to stadium operations. We completed a total transformation of an aging facility, originally built in 1958, that no longer met the needs of today’s spectator.

This fast-tracked project created all new student seating sections and two new concourses totaling 490,000 square feet, creating a full 360-degree stadium for complete access between sections. Three new premium club/suite areas were added as well as the 2,500-person Coca Cola Sun Deck for events before and after games. The inspiring Tillman Tunnel leads players onto the field from the new 118,669-square-foot student athlete center, which includes a sports medicine center, lockers, an auditorium, a weight room, food service, and a players’ lounge. Boasting 785 wireless access points, 273 DAS (cell phone) antennas, and a state-of-the-art Wi-Fi network, this facility elevated an aging facility and significantly improved communications for the teams, fans, and media.

To bring the necessary infrastructure for the facility during Phase II and arrive on schedule for game day, our 617-person workforce constructed what would be the production equivalent of two average homes a day for 265 days straight.

The ceiling height of the Main Concourse was raised to 20 feet to increase airflow and circulation; a priority since the September kickoffs often take place with triple-digit temperatures.
