This project encompassed the renovation and expansion of the existing Tyser Tower located on the south side of the University of Maryland Stadium. The existing 33,000 sf facility was completely renovated and two five-story additions (33,000 sf each) were built flanking the original facility, nearly tripling its size. The Stadium seating capacity was increased by approximately 2,000 seats including spectator suites, new President’s Lounge, and ADA-compliant spectator seats. A fully enclosed fifth level serves as a working press area along with facilities for coaches, public address, and scoring.
