Architecture: Texas A&M Kyle Field Tour

While at the COAA (Construction and Owners Association of America) conference, we went on a tour of the new Kyle Field in College Station, Texas! It’s literally the stadium of all stadiums! Here are a few details I wrote down about this $483 million dollar renovation:

Program Manager: Project Control, PC Sports Division

Architect: Populous

Contractor: Manhattan-Vaughn

Opening: September 12, 2015

Groundbreaking: November 9, 2013

Total Gross Square Footage: 1,325,150 SF

Stadium Capacity: 102,733 (previously 82,589; total of 31,000 total reserved for students)

Site: 36 Acres

If you haven’t been to Kyle Field, it’s really worth it to take a tour. My favorite part was the suits section. Each suite has a portrait of the suit owners on the outside of the door with huge chandeliers and a circular staircase!

Check out some photos I took while on the tour. Thanks for the invite COAA!

Anyone else completely obsessed with architecture and construction? What’s the best college stadium you’ve been to?

Xoxo,

Lo
