Robertson Stadium Demolition Set to Begin Dec. 2

Robertson Stadium

Nov. 30, 2012

HOUSTON – The demolition of the 70-year old Robertson Stadium on the campus of the University of Houston is set to begin on Dec. 2 as Manhattan Construction Company, employed as the project’s construction manager, begins construction on the University of Houston’s new state-of-the-art facility, set to open in August of 2014.

Manhattan Construction Company has contracted JTB Services, in a joint venture with Lindamood Demolition, to begin the Robertson Stadium demolition process on Sunday, Dec. 2.

Beginning on Dec. 2, Manhattan Construction will begin erecting construction fencing surrounding the project area and mobilizing on the southwest corner of the stadium. A vast majority of the stadium site will be fenced in by Dec. 8 with the primary construction entrance located off Scott Street.

From Dec. 2 to Dec. 9, JTB Services will strip the interior of the stadium in preparation for stadium demolition.

Major demolition activity is set to begin on Dec. 10 when the southeast concession stand is torn down, symbolizing the start of the stadium demolition. Stadium demolition is projected to last approximately six-to-eight weeks. 

The University of Houston Athletics Department will have a webcam for fans to track the progress of the demolition on UHCougars.com. Fans can also view the project in person at any time from the rooftop of the stadium parking garage.

During the construction process, campus parking will be affected as approximately 2,020 student and faculty/staff parking spots will go offline by Dec. 8. An additional 120 faculty/staff spots will be impacted following the completion of the fall semester on Dec. 22. Sixty faculty/staff spaces will remain available in lot 15F for the duration of construction.

The recent opening of the parking garage provided a 2,300 parking spots which assists in mitigating the loss of these spaces.

Those commuters displaced by the loss of parking are encouraged to seek parking in the Stadium Garage along with the East and Welcome Center parking garages.

University of Houston Parking and Transportation also urges commuters to consider the Energy Research Park as a parking option along with the Metropolitan Transit Authority of Harris County and ride-sharing programs to reduce the number of vehicles on campus.
