New football stadium for Houston Cougars

PageSoutherlandPage and DLR Group have been selected to design a new football stadium for the Houston Cougars football programme to elevate the fan and student-athlete experience.

The new stadium design will have 40,000 seats, 22 luxury suites, 200 loge box seats, club seating for 650 fans, and enhanced press facilities for the 2014 season. Fan amenities will include signature shaded areas and breezeways, expanded concessions, and upgraded scoreboards and sound system. Succeeding phases will increase seating to 50,000, and ultimately 60,000. The total project budget is US$105 million.

The new stadium will be constructed on the site of 71-year-old Robertson Stadium, which will be demolished after the 2012 season.

"This project isn't just about replacing a stadium with a more modern facility; it’s about creating a venue that showcases the football team’s on-field accomplishments while providing a spectacular view of the downtown skyline,” says PageSoutherlandPage principal in charge Jeffrey Bricker.

“The vision is to create a new venue that is captivating on game days and also an iconic, vibrant building on the campus 365 days a year,” adds DLR Group principal Don Barnum. “The integrated design team looks forward to creating a stadium that will raise the profile of Houston football in the city, in Texas, and across the country.”

Larry Speck, Design Principal of PageSoutherlandPage, said, "This building will attract more visitors to the University of Houston campus--from loyal alumni and major donors to neighborhood kids with collegiate dreams--than any other. It will create a critical outreach to the community and a conspicuous window for Houstonians into their primary hometown academic institution."

Improving the student-athlete experience is a focus of the master plan for Houston Cougar football. The new football complex will feature state-of-the-art locker facilities, including a locker room suite for Houston football and three visitor locker rooms; brand new playing surface; a 20,000 SF academic services building; a marching band rehearsal facility; and dedicated tailgating areas.
