Clemson continues with updates on Phase I of renovations to Memorial Stadium and at the Allen N. Reeves Football Complex. Construction has started on our Soccer Operations Player Village located at the Soccer Operations Complex.
Over at Memorial Stadium, the majority of the exterior work on the West Endzone club is completed. They have transitioned to working on the interior of the concession stands and restrooms. The Masters Club will have a new entrance, a higher ceiling, and a completely new look.
Work continues on the video board as the exterior has been framed up for the LED modules that will go on the front and the cladding that will go on the back. The speaker clusters are being put in place with one side already up.
On the Williamson Road side of the stadium, the medallion plaques have been enhanced and have LED lighting to be seen at night and extend the length of the stadium wall. The south side ribbon boards have been completed and put in place, and they will continue working on the north side of the stadium, where they will install new HD quality modules.
Construction is also underway at the Soccer Operation Complex on the Soccer Operation Player Village to celebrate our National Championship teams and all the student-athletes who have come before them. There have been some fire pits added, an honor wall to celebrate all the past student-athletes who have been a part of the program, and some honorary pedestal for the National Championship Teams.
At the Reeves wellness expansion, the progress continues as they are enclosing the original outdoor basketball courts, and the work for all the interior space is underway. The final touches are underway as construction on both projects remains on schedule.
Clemson continues with updates on Phase I of renovations to Memorial Stadium and at the Allen N. Reeves Football Complex.
Over at Memorial Stadium, the primary focus has been placed on the new video board, and Datktronics has been installing all the steel needed to bring in the video board panels for the 126-foot by 57-foot screen. They have begun working on the electrical and data infrastructure that will make up the inside of the new video board.
The new LED sports lights have been completely instilled and were turned on for the first time to see what night games will look like in Death Valley.
At the Allen N. Reeves Football Operations Complex 100 Yards of Wellness expansion, the progress continues as they have put up the storefront and are enclosing the original outdoor basketball courts. The framework for all the interior space is underway, and soon the final touches will be underway. Construction on both projects remains on schedule.
Over at Memorial Stadium, the primary steel structure for the videoboard has been fully erected. The work on the secondary steel attachments, catwalks, and ladders will continue to be erected over the coming weeks. On the ground level, the masonry of the videoboard footers has begun, and the hardscape along Williamson Road is being poured in place. On the west end, at the Masters Club, the framing of interior spaces is underway, while the exterior cladding of the new concessions and restroom facilities is in its final stage of being completed. Work will begin soon on the storefront and glazing of the surrounding areas as well as the precast concrete.
At the Reeves wellness expansion, interior demolition work has been completed and interior areas are being framed. The mechanical, electrical, and plumbing systems are being installed. Work will begin soon on the storefront of this space as well, before moving on to additional interior finishes.
At the Poe Student-Athlete Branding Institute, demolition has been completed on the exterior areas. Helical piers will be installed before the steel structure is erected. Additional civil and grading work is underway as well.
