Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium Southside Renovation
Project Owner: East Carolina Univeristy
Designer: LS3P / AECOM
This project involved removing the existing limited function press box that was constructed in 1977 and constructing a new press box, TowneBank Tower, that provides state-of-the-art technology and accommodates all of the needed personnel for current and envisioned future game day events. Additionally, the new structure provides 46 suite and loge boxes inside the five-story structure with a variety of seating options for fans, donors, and alumni. The project also included renovations to the current student-athlete academic support areas, training, and locker spaces that are currently in the Ward Sports Medicine Building as well as the Baseball Indoor Practice facilities, both of which are located directly beside Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium. Finally, area for 512
tailgating spaces were added to the project site modifications. This is the most extensive project enhancement to Dowdy-Ficklen Stadium since 1963.
