University of Iowa Kinnick Stadium Renovation / Iowa CityIA
Improving the game-day experience

The historic Kinnick Stadium underwent significant renovations - which were performed during football season - to improve the game-day experience for student-athletes, staff and fans. Phase I replaced the south end zone bleachers adding new concessions and restrooms, upgraded locker rooms, media interview spaces and a training room. Phase II included the addition of a new four-level structure that included 49 suites, 1,100 outdoor club seats, and 150 indoor club seats.

The project team developed a two-phase plan to complete the improvements safely and with minimal disruptions, performing the most disruptive work in each phase between football seasons and less disruptive work scheduled around game-day activities. The Mortenson team completed the renovation on time and on budget in September 2006.
