The six-year, three-phase planning, design and construction redevelopment of Amon G. Carter Stadium was a transformation from a utilitarian concrete football stadium to a venue providing modern-day amenities, while retaining the charm and character of the TCU campus. The project included the complete demolition and redevelopment of the stadium’s west side and north end zone as well as demolition and reconstruction of the east side of the stadium. New construction provided a variety of upgraded stadium elements that enhance the gameday experience for TCU football fans.

HKS EXPlore played an important role in the capital campaign for the improvements by developing a handheld digital presentation that aided TCU fundraisers in explaining the benefits of the project to potential donors. This innovative program allowed TCU to successfully raise 100 percent of the capital needed for the project in  half the expected time.

Amon G. Carter Stadium’s west side is adorned with the Founders’ Plaza and Gallery. Working within the EXPlore-designed spaces, Dallas/Fort Worth artist Dan Brook created the largest bas-relief sculptures in the Southwest for the plaza, illustrating the deep-rooted connection between TCU, the city of Fort Worth and the university’s six founding families.
