Description: New 41,000-seat multi-purpose stadium  Owner: Colorado State University ("CSU")Architect: Populous CM/GC: Mortenson Project Cost: $220,000,000 Status: Completed - July 2017


On Dec. 4, 2014, CSU received approval from its Board of Governors to move forward with construction of an on-campus multi-purpose stadium to replace the aging, off-campus Hughes Stadium. The historic vote was the culmination of two years’ worth of deliberation on a feasibility study that ICON delivered in August 2012. ICON led the expedited study in 2012 and was also involved in a number of subsequent studies evaluating options for a phased stadium building approach and potential scope reductions. 

The new 41,000-seat facility is located on the southwest side of the university’s main campus and enhances the game-day experience through expanded tailgating options, state-of-the-art video and sound systems, premium seating and first-class concessions. A $18.5 million academic, advising and alumni center, financed outside of the stadium bond, was also incorporated.

ICON has deep experience overseeing complex stadium projects, including landmark venues in Colorado, and their input and counsel will be invaluable as we examine whether to move ahead with a new stadium at Colorado State.
