FirstEnergy Stadium, home of the Cleveland Browns, underwent a 2-phased modernization in order to enhance the fan experience. Henderson Engineers was involved with Phase II of this $125 million project, which focused on the interior design and concessions of the stadium. Phase II included three new premium clubs, suite renovations, and the renovation of existing north and south sideline clubs. Club 46, a new field-level premier club, is directly across the players’ locker room facility and gives VIP members the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail as the players run onto the field.
In addition to the premium spaces, the project included new kitchens, bars, ticket offices, a novelty store, and renovations of the team store and concessions. All 35 concessions were given a face lift which included a new facade, menu boards, and food selections focused on Cleveland centric flavors. Upgraded concourse lighting and new lighting for branding and wayfinding elements completed the new look and feel of the stadium’s modernization.
