A brief history of Lambeau Field renovations

(page 2 of 2)

1985-95

The team adds fewer seats than in past years while seeking to maximize the financial impact of its expansions. In 1985, the Packers add 72 luxury suites, which increase the stadium’s capacity by 663 seats (to 56,926). In 1990, the team adds another 36 suites and 1,920 club seats in the south end zone, increasing capacity to 59,543. And in 1995, it adds 90 more suites to the north end zone, breaking the 60,000-seat threshold for the first time (60,890).

2001-03

A major renovation of Lambeau Field puts the stadium’s capacity at 73,142 — an increase of 12,032 seats. The renovation is financed in part by a controversial Brown County sales tax, which voters narrowly approved in a 2000 referendum. The final tab for the improvements: $295 million.

2011-15

Miron begins work on the recent $145 million Lambeau renovation in September 2011 and continues through July 2013. More than 4,000 tons of structural steel are used during construction, for an average of 27 tons per day.

In March, work begins on the final phase of the current renovation project, which should be completed in June 2015. At a cost of $140.5 million, the project will include a new Packers Pro Shop, a larger Oneida Nation gate that includes a plaza, new locations for the Packers Hall of Fame and Curly’s Pub, and upgrades to the Lambeau Atrium.

The energy in this place is incredible. You can feel it just walking up the place, on any given day! There's a feeling of respect honor dare I say love..It's like being at the Lincoln memorial but with beer and Brats! it's got to be experienced...two completely different experiences going to a game and going a few days before a game..and taking the tours...The Energy in this place, from all the good times over 4 generations aunts uncles grandpa everyone's there (they actually play "The Gang's All Here" at the games)And The Place, more than any man made place Ive been, proves that things like guitars and cars and buildings can retain some kind of energy from all the good experiences it's Facilitated You can feel the excitement stored up as you walk around the building...and it's such a good feeling. I wish the sponsors ike Miller Beer and Microsoft would take the building more seriously with their Logos on it...cant they make their logos look more like the building made of iron and Brick? or the interior yellow mesh fence? must they grafitia nationaN land mark...Imagine a Google Logo sign on the Eiffel Tower
