The project’s centerpiece is the new football operations building in the new west grandstands, which is comprised of brick masonry. The building’s use of stone, brick, glass and steel retains the traditional aesthetic of the stadium.
The masonry facade is primarily comprised of custom Turkish limestone in dark beige integrated with a hollow-core structural brick blend of 85 percent Carib mission and 15 percent Monterey mission. Accents are provided by a verity of sandstones and granites.
All of the CMU and brick materials used were harvested and made within 400 miles of the project.
