    SMPS Charlotte Site Tour

    May 17, 2012
    3:00 PM to 5:00 PM
     Add to Calendar

    The University of North Carolina at Charlotte
    9201 University City Boulevard
    Charlotte, NC 28223
     Directions

     Join your SMPS Charlotte on Thursday, May 17 between 3:00 - 5:00 PM as we tour the newest sports facility in our area. UNC Charlotte now has a football team... and will soon have a completed football stadium!

    The project consists of a 15,000-seat stadium, expandable to 40,000 seats, with a 46,000 SF field house, equipped with:

    • Coaches offices
    • Meeting space
    • A tiered auditorium
    • Weight and training rooms
    • Locker rooms
    • Restrooms
    • Concessions
    • Ticket office
    • Hospitality plaza
    • Athletes lounge
    • Storage

     

    Attire. Please arrive at the tour prepared to enter a construction site. You will need a hard hat, vest, eye protection, closed flat shoes, long pants, and sleeves (short sleeves OK but no sleeveless). Sunglasses can serve as your eye protection.

    Parking. Please park only in designated parking areas between the white lines. School is not in session so there should be spots available, including parking decks across campus. Please do not violate the parking regulations as there is an $80 fine.

    Tour Begins at the Rogers Builders Construction Trailer. The construction trailer is located in the vicinity of the stadium. Enter the campus from the Hwy 29 (N. Tryon) and follow the road towards the main campus. A link to the campus map below shows the stadium site. The construction trailer is past the Motorsports Research Building and to the left of the stadium site, down a dirt driveway. There will be no parking by the trailer. The worst case scenario is that you would have to park in the Union Deck (refer to the map) and follow one of the footpaths to the stadium site.

    After the tour, we will be meeting for a drink at The Flying Saucer Café located at 9605 North Tryon Street, Suite A. As you exit the campus onto Rte 29 (North Tryon), take a right and the Café will be in a strip mall on your left.

     

    If you have any questions, please contact Janet Brooks, CPSM at 704.377.8800 or jbrooks@clarknexsen.com.
