Iowa State University - Jack Trice Stadium Expansion

Ames, IA

Services provided on this project:

Architecture Overview:

Jack Trice Stadium has increased suite style seating areas and improved quality of existing club style seating areas. Additional seating in the end zone areas create enclosure and accentuate the "home field" advantage. Improvements to the toilet, concession and circulation areas in and around the stadium provide greater spectator amenities/options and heighten the excitement of Cyclone Football.

Engineering Overview:

This two phase project of the football stadium included enhancements to the east and west concourses included replacing restroom/concession buildings, adding several enclosed suites, renovation of club section and the addition of a fire sprinkler protection system. Project included installation of a new chiller, heating and cooling systems for the modified spaces, new fire sprinkler protection system, re-routing the main electrical distribution system, installing new sound reinforcement equipment for the concourses, new services to each of the new buildings and adding functional and decorative exterior lighting systems. Multiple phases were designed to allow construction to occur during the off season and not disrupt the regular season games.

Graphic Design & Multimedia Overview:

After analyzing the existing signage and wayfinding, our designers added additional sign types and updated the existing sign types to clarify key destinations and their entrances and exits. We presented environmental graphic concepts to enhance the plaza towers and concession area, both of which were added to the scope of work. The updates were designed to coordinate with the existing design style.

Lighting Design Overview:

Jack Trice Stadium renovations have increased suite style seating areas and improved quality of existing club style seating areas. Lighting within club adds to creating this special space. Improvements to the toilet, concession and circulation areas in and around the stadium provide greater spectator amenities and heighten the excitement of Cyclone Football. Custom color lenses specified to light underside of precast bowl heighten the experience for night games.
