S.B. Ballard Construction Company was the general contractor on the new Game Day Building and Parking Garage at historic Foreman Field on the Old Dominion University campus. The new Game Day Building is 54,880 square feet and includes 24 luxury suites providing seating for 12 people per suite, loge seating for 386 fans, terraces, concession stands, a full service kitchen providing food service for 14,000 patrons, restrooms, home team locker rooms, team meeting rooms, exam rooms, and sound system and scoreboard control rooms.
The Parking Garage consists of 5 levels, one on grade and four elevated for a total of 216,361 square feet and 724 parking spaces. The garage was competed 6 months prior to the contract completion date. This allowed ODU to offer parking to 724 staff and students 6 months earlier than expected. The garage also includes a storage area for the Game Day Building and playing field equipment and a ticket sales area for stadium events.
In addition to the contract for this project, S.B. Ballard was selected to perform renovations to the Seating, Structure, Press Box, University Box, and Locker Rooms.
