The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is proving to be a hit with fans - not least thanks to its fan-centric concessions pricing structure. With praise being heaped upon the stadium operators for targeting lower prices, should other major stadia follow suit and prioritize savings for fans over revenue from F&B?

University of Florida signs paperwork for renovations to athletics venue

Latest construction milestone means that building work on the University of Florida renovation project could begin before the end of the year

 

 

The University of Florida has put pen to paper for The Stephen C. O’Connell Center renovation project after construction authorization paperwork has been filed with contractor Brasfield & Gorrie. The US$64.5m renovation is a partnership between the University of Florida and the University Athletic Association.

The milestone follows the beginning of the design process in July 2014, and paves the way for building to begin. Construction fences will begin going up as early as October, though the O’Connell Center will remain fully operational until the overhaul begins in Spring 2016.

 



The improvements involved will provide students, fans, alumni and patrons with a dramatically new experience. The renovation includes a seating bowl update, the addition of premium seating areas, installation of a state-of-the-art center-hung scoreboard, upgrades to team spaces and an enhanced concourse.

The renovation is scheduled to be completed in time for UF’s Fall semester commencement in December 2016. The O’Connell Center lies at the heart of the campus, which makes it easily accessible and a vital part of student life. A new construction was judged to have been costlier and would have involved moving to a new location that didn’t enjoy many of the benefits offered by the existing site.
