Boston College, Chestnut Hill, MA / Alumni Stadium Renovation and Addition
272,500 (102,500 SF renov; 170,000 SF new)
Doug Flutie's heart-stopping Hail Mary pass brought Boston College football to national prominence. Ten years later, we transformed the Big East’s smallest and most modestly equipped stadium into a first-class, 44,500-seat Division 1A facility.

"It brought a little bit of a tear to my eye, honestly. ... The seats are so close the field it reminded me a little of Notre Dame. There's so much room underneath the stands, and it's just first-class. I can imagine bringing a young high school junior or senior and showing them this facility… we now have something that can compare with the best in the country. "
