Durham, NH – The University of New Hampshire has chosen the design-build team of Populous, Lavallee Brensinger Architects, and PC Construction for the new $25 million athletic complex slated to open in the summer of 2016.

The new four-story stadium will feature tiered seating for 11,500 and include dedicated levels for concessions and restrooms, a president’s suite, press and club boxes with a common multipurpose stadium club room, a gateway entry with ticket sales building, and a pedestrian concourse.

The project will be built to UNH’s high sustainability requirements and meet the standards associated with a LEED Silver facility.

Lavallee Brensinger will serve as the architect of record, and brings its long-standing relationship with the university to the table. Lavallee Brensinger most recently completed the lighting and grandstand renovations to Cowell Stadium. It teamed with Populous to design the Verizon Wireless Arena in 2001, and has worked with PC Construction on numerous education, corporate, and healthcare projects throughout the Northeast region.

Populous, a sports facility design firm, is recognized for its focus on designing spaces as steadfast, enduring landmarks within their communities.

PC Construction of Portland, Maine has partnered on many projects for the University System of New Hampshire, and most recently completed the 115,000sf LEED Gold Peter T. Paul College of Business and Economics on the university campus.

The official groundbreaking for the stadium is scheduled for the spring of 2015. The new facility will open in time to host the university’s 2016 football season home opener.
