Levi’s Stadium

A sustainable arena that keeps fans close to the action

Levi’s Stadium is an open-air, multipurpose venue, home to the San Francisco 49ers American football team. The 77,000-seat facility opened on schedule in July 2014. It is set up to host a variety of sports, including soccer, wrestling and motocross, as well as concerts and conferences. Its 200 luxury suites, built across two levels, are clustered on one side of the field, meaning fans in the upper deck of normal seating can be closer to the action.

WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff was the engineer of record for the stadium, designed with a strong focus on spectator experience and green technology.  Our services included MEP, fire protection and sports lighting, as well as sustainable design.

The building is one of the most sustainable sporting venues in the United States, and currently the only professional football stadium to achieve LEED Gold certification. Environmentally friendly features include: a heating, ventilation and air-conditioning system that avoids CFC-based refrigerants, instead relying on materials that minimise ozone-depleting compounds; use of recycled water for landscape irrigation; and a solar-panelled roof deck that powers the stadium through home games.

In addition to typical spectator amenities, such as clubs, restrooms and shops, the stadium features day-of-game team facilities, stadium and team administration offices and related back-of-house areas.
