Turner-AECOM Hunt, the joint venture of Turner Construction Company and AECOM Hunt, part of AECOM, celebrated the opening of SoFi Stadium, the new home of the Los Angeles Rams and Los Angeles Chargers, in Inglewood, California. The 3.1 million-square-foot facility, which is the first football stadium erected in Los Angeles in nearly a century, can host approximately 70,000 fans and is expandable to accommodate up to 100,000 people for special events. After breaking ground on the state-of-the-art stadium in November 2016, the joint venture has overseen a team that encompassed approximately 3,000 workers daily at peak, with more than 17,000 people in total contributing to make the NFL’s largest stadium a reality. This included excavating more than seven million cubic yards of dirt to build the field level 100 feet below grade.

A key element of SoFi Stadium is its integration of the latest technology, ensuring a truly unique fan experience. The centerpiece of the facility is a double-sided video board that sits 120 feet above the field and contains panels as tall as forty feet. The video board is the largest in the league, longer than the playing field, and weighs approximately 2.2 million pounds.

A signature feature of the stadium is the opened-ended, semi-translucent, one million-square-foot roof, which helps define the facility as the only open-air, indoor-outdoor facility in the NFL. The design of the roof enables the sun to shine inside the stadium and breezes to be felt from the ocean five miles away. The roof structure is the biggest of its kind and is comprised of 35,000 unique panels, contains 17 miles of cable, and weighs 500 million pounds.

The stadium is slated to host a variety of events including Super Bowl LVI in 2022, the College Football Championship Game in 2023, and the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Olympic Games in 2028.
