“The progress from this point forward will be less dramatic to the eye, but, nonetheless, very, very important to the project,” Jane Meyer, the UI’s senior associate athletics director said Friday when she toured Kinnick Stadium with Mark Kamps, the public address announcer for Iowa men’s basketball and a handful of other guests.
Yes, there was a lot of “detail work” being accomplished – urinals and sinks were being hung in a men’s restroom, tile was being installed on the walls and floor of the UI team lockerroom, ground cover was being planted in the spaces immediately below the southeast and southwest concourses.
Of course, there was also significant work being done. The videowall at t the northwest corner of the stadium was being installed, metals studs were being put in place on the first level of the press box and concrete was being poured in portions of the parking lot to the stadium’s immediate west.
“The progress from this point forward will be less dramatic to the eye, but, nonetheless, very, very important to the project.”

“The crew is busy and, frankly, it will remain busy right up to Sept. 3 and the season opener and beyond. We’re pleased with the progress, but we’ve got plenty of work to be done before we can stage a football game inside Kinnick,” said Meyer.
Fans of the Hawkeyes can follow the progress by visiting the photo gallery at kinnickrenovation.com, the official world wide web site of the Iowa Hawkyes.
