The College of William & Mary engaged the team of BCWH/McMillan Pazdan Smith to perform a comprehensive programming study of the 1935 era, Zable Stadium. Informed by the programming work, design of a complex addition and renovation are currently underway. The focus of the stadium improvements will primarily be on renovating and expanding the west grandstands which will include new seating, new concessions and restroom facilities, suite level, press box and upper concourse level. Other improvements to the stadium will include renovation of the existing east grandstand and a new concession and restroom building.
The overall design features encourage adaptive re-use, flexibility, integration with the existing campus architecture, maximum use of natural light/ventilation, the use of durable building materials, and will incorporate landscaping and storm water design.
The renovation, scheduled to begin early next year, is expected to be complete in time for the 2016 football season.
