Challenges

We were building the sports fields on top of Clay soil. Clay soil not good to use in a foundation as it expands and contracts, which breaks the concrete foundation. It is also very unstable due to this fact. We also could not import dirt during pick up and drop off times at school.

Results

  • Enhance the overall fan experience with over 100k s.f. added.
  • Stadium Plaza is now a permanent part of the Stadium and the Superwall is substantially larger allowing it to display up to five matches at one time.
