Since 1960, Beaver Stadium has been the home field for the Nittany Lions. Barton Malow and joint venture partner Alexander have completed several renovations, expanding the venue’s seating capacity to fit even more Penn State fans.

Our first major project consisted of an addition of new luxury skyboxes and VIP suites on the east sideline; the addition of 6,000 new general seats and 4,000 new club seats in the south endzone expansion; an All-Sports Museum and club lounge in the south endzone; renovation of the home team locker room and media room; and improvements to spectator amenities and circulation.

Our team has continued collaborating with Penn State Athletics on additional studies, renovations, and continuous improvement projects in and around Beaver Stadium.

A Dedicated Team

Penn State has described the stadium expansion project as a major success, due mostly to the great dedication and hard work of Barton Malow/Alexander project team in collaboration with the Athletics Department. Their confidence in the team was so high that Penn State increased our Scope of Work with Owner-requested changes by over 20%. The increased scope included a brand-new gate/concourse, a large electrical upgrade re-feeding the north endzone buildings, and a complete re-paving underneath the bowl just two months before substantial completion.

Beaver Stadium isn’t the only jumbo-sized stadium Barton Malow’s expert sports teams have worked on. Explore the rest of our sports market work
