Description: 76,125-seat NFL stadium Team: Denver Broncos (NFL) Owner: Metropolitan Football Stadium District (MFSD)/Denver Broncos Architect: HNTB CM/GC: Turner Construction Company Project Cost: $400,700,000 Status: Completed - August 11, 2001


In this age of NFL stadium construction exceeding $1 billion, Sports Authority Field at Mile High stands out as the model for extraordinary, yet responsible, stadium design and budget management. The $401 million total project budget stands out both for its value and elegance. With 76,000 seats and 1.8 million sf, Sports Authority Field at Mile High is among the largest NFL stadiums in existence. It has all the premium amenities and fan experiences of its peer NFL stadia, yet it was built for a fraction of the cost. The famous horseshoe design and steel seating terraces carry forward the history and magic of Mile High Stadium, former home of the Denver Broncos. Tim Romani was engaged by both the Denver Broncos and the MFSD to guide the project and delivered the stadium keys more than a month before the Broncos’ home opener and right on budget.
