Groundbreaking on Weber State University Athletic Complex

Big-D Construction is continuing a longstanding relationship with Weber State University with work on a new athletics facility on campus. Just before the Wildcats first home football game at Stewart Stadium, the official groundbreaking ceremony was held to officially kickoff the project.

Once complete, the new building will house strength and conditioning facilities for student athletes. There will also be a 125-seat team meeting room, as well as new football locker rooms, coaches’ offices, and an equipment room. The project is expected to be complete ahead of the 2019 football season.
According to the Standard-Examiner Newspaper, money for the project was raised from private donors and former players. The NCAA also provided the school with a $700,000 grant for academic spaces in the new facility.

Weber State had hoped to break a world record for most people to participate in a groundbreaking event. The school fell just short of the groundbreaking mark of 6,256. Fans who did participate received their own commemorative mini shovels. The project is being performed with VCBO Architecture.
