In an effort to improve football fans’ gameday experience, Duke University partnered with Beck’s design and construction teams for a renovation of Wallace Wade football stadium. Field-level renovations included lowering the football field five feet, removing the running track, adding seating and installing an entirely new playing field and scoreboard. The concourses along the stadium’s perimeter were enhanced with new concession stands, entry gates, retail, modern restrooms, ticketing booths, and first aid stations.

The new Blue Devil Tower is a 5-level, 97,000 SF press tower and houses 22 luxury suites. The club level offers 858 seats complemented by upscale food service. The fourth floor includes the press box, camera booths, coaches’ boxes and network broadcast space.
