Ya there is no way it's concrete with that schedule. At least I can't imagine. But then again I watched them build the new district 9 in town center with post-tension concrete damn fast.

Posted from mobile device. Hopefully it's coherent.

I can take exposed underside if it's concrete. That's the way ECU's stadium is and it's fine. What I don't want and you can't tell materials from the renderings is aluminum construction like FAU's stadium, Richmond International Raceway, and our current endzone. The aluminum looks cheap and has a weird sound coming off of it. And if you are walking underneath it, it's disgusting when people above spill their beverages and it drips down through the gaps.

Has to be concrete. Unfortunately with the extremely aggressive construction schedule, I get the gut feel that it's all aluminum decking. Hope I'm wrong.03-puke

This is a good point. The upper concourse is below the upper deck. Nobody will want to be there if it’s raining spilled popcorn and soda below. Hopefully there is a way to seal it up good. Concrete feels safer and higher quality too, but like you all, I’m not expecting it.

RE: NEW stadium construction
looking at phase 1 renderings, I don’t see where any new suites would go in future phases. I loved the previous design suites. I wonder if theyll build suites on the endzone on the other side of the gameday building.

I was thinking the same.

I think there is room for suites under the press box level on the west side. If I recall from previous renderings, that is where they were intended to go in phase 2.

RE: NEW stadium construction
Anyone else notice the ribbon video board around the rim between the lower and upper decks? If they're doing that like the TED, maybe they'll go ahead and update the scoreboard as well while they're at it. One can only hope!

The more I keep looking at the pictures, the more I get excited. Maybe it's the "just be happy we're finally getting something" taking over from my initial disappointment, but I think it's going to be a good looking structure once all is said and done.

I saw the banner and they made mention of it. Probably why they're waiting to do new scoreboard over North end zone all at once. I imagine it'll be mounted on that structure.
