Stepping up the Game in Fayetteville

Stepping up the Game in Fayetteville

January 7, 2019

Partnering with Populous and Polk Stanley Wilcox Architects, Walter P Moore helped the University of Arkansas Razorbacks tackle renovations to their beloved stadium. From an additional 4,000 seats to record-breaking pulled pork sales at the improved concession spaces, Sports Business Journal explores the stadium fans are flipping for. 

“The design team’s vision was to create a ‘front door’ to a historic facility,” said Randy Braun, principal at Walter P Moore and Associates. "The vision was to create and extend the Arkansas brand into a modern, cohesive look to appeal to fans and top-level recruits. Our job, as structural engineers, was to bring the dream to reality. Arkansas is now on par with its competition.”

Walter P Moore and Associates tackled challenges renovating the  80-year-old structure, including adding 16-foot glass walls on the club level and installing a new scoreboard on top of the existing structure that were wind resistant. Both aspects took “a lot of analysis and a lot of welding new steel beams” to accomplish.
