BRONCOS ANNOUNCE SIGNIFICANT FACILITY EXPANSION/UPGRADES AT DOVE VALLEY
ENGLEWOOD, Colo.— The Denver Broncos will break ground this week on a significant facility expansion and renovation at their team headquarters at Dove Valley, President Joe Ellis announced.
The two-part project will include the construction of an indoor practice facility as well as major upgrades to the existing Paul D. Bowlen Memorial Broncos Centre, which was built in 1990. Construction on the indoor practice facility will begin with a groundbreaking ceremony on Tuesday and modifications to the current complex will begin at the conclusion of the 2013 season.
Funded by the Broncos and Owner Pat Bowlen, the investment will ensure that the team’s facilities will be among the best in all of professional sports.
Please see below for an outline of the projects:
INDOOR PRACTICE FACILITY:
The new 115,000 square-foot indoor practice facility, which will be built to the west of the current practice fields, will include an 85,000 square-foot field house as well as a 30,000 square-foot support space. The full-length field, locker room and football service area will be accompanied by meeting spaces, a video production room and a Broncos retail outlet among other features.
In addition to providing the team with a year-round venue for training, the grounds surrounding the new indoor facility will enhance the training camp experience for fans beginning in 2015. A larger public viewing area, including additional ADA seating, will be accompanied by additional parking and improved restroom facilities.
PAUL D. BOWLEN MEMORIAL BRONCOS CENTRE:
A sizeable investment is being made to the existing facility to expand the building on the north end and renovate the lobby, media room and other existing infrastructure on the south side.
The 12,000-square foot building expansion to the north will include a new commercial kitchen and cafeteria as well as new video operations and football technology offices.
A front lobby renovation and expanded media room will highlight the upgrades on the south end of the facility. Several new offices and workspaces along with more than 3,000 square feet of additional conference space will also be created as part of the project.
Les Wells of The Wells Partnership is serving as the Owners Representative Company for the entire project with Saunders Construction, Inc., being utilized as the contractor. The indoor field house was designed by Sink Combs Dethlefs, a firm that specializes in sports architecture, and the facility renovations were planned by Intergroup Architects.
