UH seeks design firm for $78M football operations building
The University of Houston (UH) will host a pre-submittal conference at 10 a.m. March 9 for architecture and engineering services to design a new $78.6 million football operations building.
Located at the university’s main campus, the 120,000-square-foot facility will be designed to integrate with the existing Football Indoor Practice Facility and to consolidate all football operations into one building.
A program of requirements lists space needs for a lobby, dining room, locker rooms, players’ lounge, equipment room, sports medicine, recruiting area, and coaches’ offices. Construction of a VIP suite is an optional upgrade to the stadium’s west end zone.
This is a new facility to replace the current smaller facility and is part of the university’s larger football strategy to meet the growing aspirations of the team, to modernize the football athletes’ experience, and to remain competitive in the recruiting process.
Design is scheduled to start in June with construction beginning in June 2023. Final completion is set for January 2025.
