WCN Editorial Team 18 Jul 2016 NORTH AMERICA BUILDINGS

Turner Construction and Aecom have been selected by Hollywood Park Land Company to manage the construction of a new stadium for the Los Angeles Rams football team.

The new 70,000-seat stadium is the centrepiece of a 298-acre mixed-use development being constructed in Inglewood, California.

The stadium will include 275 luxury suites, over 16,000 premium seats, and about 279,000sq m of usable space. In addition to its seating capacity, the venue will also offer standing room for 27,000 spectators.

Turner/AECOM joint venture principal-in-charge Robert Aylesworth said: "Construction of the new stadium is expected to provide more than 3,500 on-site construction jobs in Inglewood and, in total, more than 10,000 jobs through completion.

"We are bringing together a team of outstanding, highly creative people from Southern California, across the United States and around the world to build this once-in-a-lifetime project."

The Turner/AECOM team joins three other firms already involved in the project: Project Development, which is providing project management services; HKS Architects of Dallas, which designed the new stadium; and Wilson Meany of San Francisco, which is providing entitlement and infrastructure management services.
