Kimley-Horn is currently providing land development services, including transportation planning and civil engineering design services for the Las Vegas Stadium—the soon-to-be home of the NFL’s Raiders upon the team’s relocation in 2020.
This $1.9 billion stadium is designed to hold 65,000 seats and includes additional seating options for special events and a retractable field. The Kimley-Horn team’s scope of work included entitlements, mapping, due diligence, permitting, on/offsite civil engineering, traffic engineering and analysis, traffic signal designs, stormwater management, USACE facility permitting, and parking design. With a critical path item of relocating an existing USACE facility prior to starting the foundation work, Kimley-Horn obtained a permit from USACE on schedule to allow foundation work to commence.
Scheduled to open for the 2020 NFL season, the stadium also will serve as the new home of University of Nevada at Las Vegas (UNLV) football. This facility is partially funded by a $750 million public investment component from the Nevada Legislature.
Kimley-Horn understands the significance of a project schedule with a key opening date and works with the project team to collaborate toward achieving that goal. Construction began in November 2017 and, upon completion, will be the fastest design and construction schedule for a stadium of its size and magnitude.
