KSU Bill Snyder Family Stadium East Side Expansion


Walter P Moore provided structural engineering services for the replacement of the east stands, the addition of 31 suites and 2,000 club seats and an expansion of the press box. With the public demand for tickets increasing, seating capacity needed to be expanded. Previously seating 39,000, the stadium now seats 50,000 spectators. The precast seating spans over 42 feet. Rigid steel frames consist of 27-foot cantilevers at the club level and 20-foot cantilevers at the upper deck. The highest upper deck precast seating is 80 feet above grade. Additional restrooms and concessions were also added to this portion of the Wildcat’s stadium.

Walter P Moore continued to provide structural engineering services at the stadium with the completion of the new Vanier Football Complex on the north end in 2015 and the northeast corner expansion, which was completed in the summer of 2016.
