Raba Kistner Facilities/Project Control was selected as Program Manager for the Texas A&M Kyle Field Redevelopment in November 2012. Since that time, they have been working on the Phase I Re-development Plan, which incorporated conceptual planning, logistics, schedule and budget creation. Kyle field will become the largest stadium in the Southeastern Conference now that university regents have approved the $450 million redevelopment plan. The stadium’s capacity will increase from 82,589 to 102,500 seats in the expansion. The renovation will begin after the 2013 football season and should be finished for the 2015 season.
The team will continue to play in the stadium during construction. A new façade for the stadium will be built, with new exterior plaza areas that will accommodate tailgating and stadium access. Interior improvements will feature increased chair-back seating, more suites, boxes and premium seating with club areas. The latest game day technology, wider concourses, more restrooms and better concession areas describe more of the improvements.
