University of Cincinnati Nippert Stadium

The University of Cincinnati's new Nippert Stadium West Pavilion raises the standard for collegiate stadium facilities.

This project stretches across seven levels, including a 130,000 SF press / VIP tower, the replacement of all existing game day functions, and enhanced premium seating through the addition of 1,100 club seats, 30 loge boxes, and 21 private suites.

Maximizing originality with the functionality of the athletic facility and high end VIP spaces was a challenge, yet a stimulating part of the design process. CBRE | Heery collaborated with Architecture Research Office on this project.

Key project components:

  • Outdoor roof terrace for pre-activation
  • 50-seat president’s suite and private suites for ADs
  • 1,100 new club seats
  • Concourse and pedestrian access enhancement
  • Meeting and dining rooms
  • Press facilities
