Indian Wells Stadium Two

Indian Wells Stadium Two

Project Description

The state-of-the-art Stadium 2 project at the Indian Wells Tennis Garden is much more than an 8,000 seat stadium. It marks a complete expansion of the Indian Wells Tennis Garden site and an increase in the quality of the fan experience that has no peer in the tennis world.

Stadium 2 is the only tennis stadium in the world where you can watch professional tennis while experiencing five-star dining. The new grand entrance off of Washington Avenue gives the Garden the front door it never had. The additional shade structures as well the expanded walkways and lounging areas give the fans an incredible experience not just in the stadiums, but on the grounds as well. The new 12-kV electrical backbone will make sure that broadcasting tennis worldwide will be uninterrupted. In short, the Stadium 2 and Site Expansion project has raised the bar in the tennis community worldwide.

Challenges

Stadium Two was a pioneer in the tennis stadium industry. At its release, it was the most technologically advanced tennis stadium in the world and still is the only tennis stadium in the world where you can watch professional tennis while dining at a five-star restaurant. The project needed constant reworks as the design changed and the final product became clearer in the eyes of the design team. This project was done in two years with the first year focusing on opening up the grand entrance off of Washington Avenue and rerouting things like plumbing, electrical, etc. The second-year focused on the stadium and finishing it up before the BNP Paribas Open that year.
