Lavallee Brensinger Architects are teamed with Populous and PC Construction for a joint Design/Build venture to create a new, state-of-the-art NCAA Division I stadium for the UNH Wildcats Athletics program. When complete for the start of the 2016 football season, the new facility will provide 10,000 to 12,000 seats and an outstanding fan experience.
The design provides multiple seating venues including: lower level seats for fans to get closer to the action, upper level seating with premium views for the club level, event patios for a unique fan experience, additional seating at the end zone berm, and a dedicated “Cat Pack” student seating section.
The new four-story facility will house concessions offering some of the best food on campus, and a club level for VIPs, supporters, and a game day with the UNH President. Above the club level is the press and coaches level that will be wired for modern broadcast and recording to benefit the fans, players, and coaches.
This new facility is sure to be a showpiece of UNH Wildcats Athletics and indicative of the quality and strength of this growing program.
