The San Diego State University has selected Clark Construction Group to design and build the university’s new multi-use stadium in Mission Valley.
The company will design and build the expandable 35,000-capacity stadium to support collegiate football, professional and collegiate soccer, NCAA championship games, concerts and other events.
Construction is set to begin in early 2020 with a completion date in time for the start of the 2022 NCAA football season.
The contract is valued at around $250 million, which includes the direct cost of construction.
Clark and SDSU will go through a joint selection process for the stadium architect. The project will be required to pay prevailing wage.
Clark will proceed with the design and planning for the new stadium, concurrent with the university’s negotiations with the City of San Diego to purchase the land, and the development of the draft environmental impact report (EIR) for the complete SDSU Mission Valley development.
SDSU recently completed the scoping period for the draft EIR and will now begin working on the document. It is anticipated that the draft EIR will be out for public review this summer and the California State University Board of Trustees is expected to consider its approval at their first meeting in 2020.
In addition to the new stadium, SDSU Mission Valley will be the location of a campus expansion, which will include a university research and innovation district, a community river park and housing.
