Barton Malow, along with joint-venture partner Bernards of San Fernando, CA, is overseeing the preconstruction and renovation of one of the most recognized stadiums in the country. Rose Bowl Stadium, which hosts the annual New Year’s Tournament of Roses football game, was built in 1922 and is listed as a National Landmark in the National Register of Historic Places.
The stadium improvements and renovation project focuses on safety, enhanced fan experiences, enhancing facility operations and making overall improvements that ensure continued profitability and National Landmark status.
The scope of work on this historic renovation includes demolition of existing suites and press boxes to make way for all new suites and press boxes. Also included is the installation of a new underground utility loop around the existing stadium concourse, new restrooms, new concession areas, widening of existing pedestrian tunnels that are used to access the stadium bowl, new seating, new LED boards, new stadium entrance gates, subterranean field lounges, new concourse lounges, improved signage, landscaping and a new electrical substation.
Work was completed with the Rose Bowl operating as usual with ongoing events including UCLA football, Gold Cup Soccer, Fourth of July Fireworks Displays, Monthly Flea Markets and more. This required detailed planning, coordination of construction phases and ensuring the safety of fans, employees, and all project teams.
The project was completed just in time for the 100th Rose Bowl game on January 1, 2014.
