Turner is proud to partner once again with the Portland Timbers as they embark on the next phase of development at their stadium, Providence Park—a $44 million expansion to enhance the experience for fans and players alike with added seats, features, and amenities.
“In terms of what fans and visitors will notice, we’re adding three levels on the stadium’s East side – a total of more than 80,000 square feet,” explained Brian Sabom, Turner Project Manager, noting that the expansion will include more than 3,800 additional seats and create standing room for just under 300 people. “We’re also adding restrooms and new concessions, and renovating the team store.”
The project also adds a cantilevered roof structure that will cover the seating bowl on the east side. “The roof is going to be significant addition, shading fans from the sun and protecting them from rain while at the same time giving the whole stadium a new look and feel,” continued Brian. “The roof itself is roughly 50,000 square feet, and features trusses more than 150 feet long.
And the updates don’t just make a difference to fans—if you’re a hometown or visiting player, you’ll also enjoy a number of updates, such as a new, low-impact synthetic turf field, updated field lighting, and likely an updated scoreboard. Added Brian, “We’re proud that the Timbers have once again selected Turner and we look forward to working closely together to bring their vision to life.”
