UT Seeks Construction Firm to Expand Longhorn Stadium
The University of Texas has issued a request for qualifications to construction companies that have the capacity to renovate and expand Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium. The stadium is home to the Texas Longhorns football team and is ranked as the eight-largest stadium in the United States, with the capacity to hold over 100,000 fans. The preliminary cost estimated by the RFQ is a rough $140 million boost.
The expansion will be centered around the stadium's south end, the site of the $8 million "Godzillatron" screen.
The University of Texas at Austin seeks to build an expansion to the Darrell K Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium to replace the existing South End zone bleachers and existing video display with a new South End Zone, video display, and renovate portions of the adjacent Moncrief-Neuhaus Athletic Center. This project is a part of Texas Athletics’ ongoing efforts to expand and upgrade their current facilities to provide the best facilities and services for their student athletes, fans, and staff with a critical eye to the latest in student athlete safety, well-being, and rehabilitation.
The scope of this project is proposed to include new exclusive suites, clubs, open air concourses, restroom facilities, new coaches offices, a banquet kitchen, premium, Loge, and student seating, private game-day parking, branding graphics, Longhorn Network areas, Sports Medicine/Nutrition areas, hydrotherapy, and other support spaces.
