The Las Vegas Raiders stadium broke ground in November, joining a growing list of major stadium projects underway in the U.S. The project was designed by Manica Architecture with HNTB serving as architect of record. Major design subconsultants include civil engineer Kimley-Horn, structural engineer ARUP and MEP engineer SSR. The $1.9-billion project, which includes $750 million in public funding, will serve as the new home of the NFL’s Raiders, who are relocating from Oakland, Calif. The stadium features a horseshoe-shaped seating arrangement that is open on one end, offering views of the Las Vegas Strip. The domed stadium includes 65,000 seats and is designed to be expandable to 72,000 for major events such as the Super Bowl. A 120-ft-tall tower will house a “flaming cauldron” in honor of former owner Al Davis. The stadium is currently targeted for completion in time for the 2020 NFL season. Also expected to open in 2020 is the Los Angeles Stadium and Entertainment District at Hollywood Park in Inglewood, Calif., the future home of the NFL's Los Angeles Chargers.
