A Little Steel, A Little Brick, and a Lot of Hard Work

April 28, 2005

There’s a little steel, a little brick, a little concrete and evidence of a whole lotta progress in the latest collection of photographs from the renovation site at historic Kinnick Stadium.

Masons are moving along nicely with the brickwork. They started at the southwest corner of the facility and are just about ready to turn the corner and begin the façade that runs parallel to Melrose Avenue. At the other end of the south grandstand, steel is ready to be prepared for the installation of the Tyvek and other materials that rest immediately behind the exterior brick.

At ground level beneath the bleachers, the hallways and rooms of that space are all but defined and are being refined.

Work is also progressing nicely on the steel work for the south end of the new press box. The picture of that work provides a hint of the depth and width of the new structure.

Work on the project also continues away from the site itself. Staff of the UI Athletic Ticket Office and the UI Foundation continue to visit with individuals about the few remaining opportunities for premium seating inside the new press box. Fans of the Hawkeyes interested in enjoying the Iowa Hawkeyes and the amenities that will be available in those areas of the renovated Kinnick Stadium should not delay in making contact with the UI Department of Intercollegiate Athletics. The opportunities are extremely limited and are selling briskly.

Final planning is also underway for the capital campaign that will provide friends and fans of the University of Iowa and the Iowa Hawkeyes an opportunity to provide personal financial support for the multi-million dollar project. Details of the opportunities available in that program will be announced in July.

Fans are also reminded that season tickets and three-game ticket packages are currently on sale. Fans can purchase theirs online at hawkeyesports.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkeyes; over the telephone by calling 1-800 IA HAWKS; and in person at the UI Athletic Ticket Office located in Carver-Hawkeye Arena.
