New stadium construction video

May 2, 2016


Colorado State University will open its new multi-purpose on-campus stadium in just over a year, and anticipation is mounting as the facility rapidly takes shape. In recent weeks the installation of structural steel has commenced, dramatically changing the look of the west side of the building rising up just south of the intersection of Pitkin Street and Meridian Avenue on the Fort Collins campus.

Today, Rams All Access takes you on a visual tour of the construction site in the second of a video series that shows Rams fans a glimpse of the future. Scheduled to open for the 2017 football season, the 41,000-capacity stadium will retain a significant piece of CSU Football history with the transfer of the "Sonny Lubick Field" name from Hughes Stadium, thanks to a $20 million anonymous donation.

The field-naming gift was announced March 25 in a special spring football event, at which Director of Athletics Joe Parker announced that the stadium construction project by Mortenson Construction and ICON Venue Group was "on-time and on-budget."

Last week pre-cast stadia installation began in the lower bowl, and this week overhead rough-in continues in the northwest field level where the weight room and training room are located, and HydroWorx pools will be delivered. The fifth of six concrete pours on the west concourse level happens today and more vertical steel will take the west tower higher beginning May 9.

The west side tower will include all of football operations at ground level and 100 level, with suites, loge boxes, indoor and outdoor club sections, Hall of Champions and the press box highlighting the upper levels. The east side of the structure will house the brand new CSU Alumni Center as well as classroom space and student advising offices, making the stadium a gathering place that engages and unites all aspects of the University's past, present and future.

Construction progress can be viewed daily via multiple webcam angles provided on the official new stadium website at stadium.colostate.edu, as well as time-lapse motion of the progress since construction began.

The stadium website also features an immersive look at the various premium seating options currently available for sale, as well as online purchase of commemorative bricks that will be permanently placed in the north entry of the stadium.

It's an exciting time for Colorado State University, preparing to bring football back to campus for the first time in nearly 50 years! Enjoy an in-depth update on the construction progress through our latest video!
