The Nittany Lions have called the current location of Beaver Stadium home since 1960. Barton Malow began collaborating with Penn State Athletics at the facility in 1999 and has continually been involved with joint venture partner, Alexander, on projects large and small since then. The original 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. Additional work was done to replace scoreboards, renovate the north end zone, and perform general maintenance work including the recently introduced Tunnel Club. Overall improvements to spectator amenities and circulation have been at the forefront of the work performed through the years, with a foundation of trust built between Barton Malow and Penn State since the stadium expansion project almost 25 years ago. In the fall of 2023, Penn State announced its selection of the joint venture team Barton Malow AECOM Hunt Alexander for the construction management of the latest stadium renovations, bringing together a continuation of knowledge and breadth of national sports experience.

A Dedicated Team

Penn State has described the 1999 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.
