This $295,000,000 project consisted of adding roughly 10,000 seats, including 6,000 general admission seats within the bowl, new club seating, and new luxury boxes increasing the stadium capacity to approximately 71,500. A “Titletown” Atrium was constructed, to house the Packers Hall of Fame, Packers Pro Shop, Curly’s Pub, several other themed eateries, a banquet room, and a large 3 – story open area for special events. A new Packers locker room, classrooms, and training facilities were added below the atrium and corporate offices were added above. The lower concourse was widened and a second, upper concourse was added, increasing the total concession stands from 186 to 300 and increasing restroom facilities from 616 to 1150.
All of the improvements to Lambeau involved a 2-year commitment from Tweet/Garot to provide the heating, ventilation, air conditioning, and plumbing for the complex. Work proceeded on an aggressive schedule through two Wisconsin winters, with detailed attention to pre-planning to allow Packer home games to be played in the bowl without interruption. Our work reached peak manpower loading in June of 2002 with 155 Sheet Metal workers, Steamfitters, and Plumbers on the project. 2,500 plumbing fixtures, 104,000 ft. of hot and chilled water piping, 730,000 lbs. of galvanized ductwork, over 2,000 tons of air-cooled chillers and 40 million BTUH of hot water boilers were installed in a two-year timeframe.
Tweet/Garot is pleased to have been an integral part of this project and to have provided a comfortable and efficient end product for not just the Green Bay Packers organization, but the entire Packers’ Nation, for many generations to come.
