Designs for Protective Stadium were presented to the Birmingham-Jefferson Convention Complex (BJCC) board of directors at this afternoon’s regularly scheduled BJCC board meeting. The presentation incorporated additional details of interior and exterior designs, the 45,000-capacity seating plan and a sun study, all provided by Populous, the world-renowned architectural firm hired to serve as lead architect on the project. The board presentation focused on Protective Stadium interior and exterior designs, revealing renderings previously unseen by the public. The BJCC also presented a sun study to demonstrate sun patterns in and around the stadium at different times of day throughout the calendar year. With this sun study, sports and entertainment fans will know exactly where the sun will fall during a 2 o’clock event in September versus a 5 o’clock event in November at Protective Stadium. Following Birmingham’s Design Review Committee approval of the stadium’s external materials on September 11, 2019, the next step in the construction process is the preparation of a comprehensive construction package. The package will be put forward for public bid later this year. The University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) football team will be the multi-purpose stadium’s primary tenant, making Protective Stadium the Home of the UAB Blazers. – Read More
