CITRUS BOWL RENOVATION
CITY OF ORLANDO - FLORIDA CITRUS BOWL/CAMPING WORLD STADIUM
$208 Million Renovation in less than Ten Months
When the City of Orlando approved demolition and reconstruction of 80% of the City’s iconic Citrus Bowl in 2012, the biggest challenge facing the development team was to complete the project in a ten-month period—in order to avoid loss of revenue and maintain continuity of several annual marquee events. The City turned to SC Advisors to lead the project.
Ground was broken the day after the annual Monster Truck Jam—on January 30, 2013. Our team was charged with the replacement of the entire lower bowl seating structure, new ground and mid-level concourse, new premium seating areas, food service and concession facilities, back of the house operations and field improvements—all integrated into a contemporary design with state of the art vertical circulation to three concourses.
The delivery model to meet this aggressive schedule required that over 100 million hours of work in place be painstakingly choreographed to ensure the complete integration of disciplines and extraordinary levels of cooperation and coordination. The exhaustive planning paid off.
On November 19, 2013, 295 days after work commenced, the ribbon was cut and three days later, the stadium welcomed over 40,000 Florida Classic fans to the new venue.
