The $1.2 billion Levi’s Stadium, designed by HNTB, is one of the most innovative and technologically advanced stadiums in the NFL today. Delivered on budget and on schedule, the home of the San Francisco 49ers is the first new-construction NFL stadium to achieve LEED® Gold certification.
To achieve the premium design and express the franchise’s distinctive character, the project team formed a “creative council,” which informed the design of premium spaces and resulted in each club feeling like the sponsor’s brand.
The stadium was delivered under a first-of-its-kind hybrid design-build model, which thrives on intense owner-project team collaboration. The heightened collaboration accelerated an aggressive schedule. Construction started in April 2012, and Levi’s Stadium opened July 17, 2014, becoming the NFL’s fastest-constructed stadium.
FROM CAMBRIDGE SEVEN ASSOCIATES:
C7A designed the interior architecture and exhibits for the new San Francisco 49ers Museum to celebrate the outstanding achievements and legacy of this important NFL dynasty. Located in Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California, the 49ers Museum takes visitors on a dynamic interactive journey where they can wander among life-sized statues of honored members and use interactive kiosks to read stats and biographies of the great 49ers players, including Jerry Rice, Steve Young, and Joe Montana. As visitors continue through the Team Gallery and Bill Walsh's Office, they encounter the Heritage Gallery spiral, which features a timeline of brilliant 49ers moments through the decades. From there, visitors experience the excitement of being “In the Game” as they simulate passing, receiving, blocking and practice their agility as part of a virtual football game. The journey culminates with five Lombardi Super Bowl trophies in a gallery celebrating the city the team calls home, San Francisco.
