The Texas A&M Kyle Field Redevelopment is the most extensive redevelopment of a collegiate athletic facility in history, redefining what is possible in sports facility enhancement and serving as the benchmark for future university stadium projects nationwide.

One of the most complex sports projects ever attempted and with one of the most complicated seating bowl structures in the nation, Kyle Field presented the massive design challenges of a significant new sports stadium with the intricate and often unforeseen difficulties of a major renovation. The engineering work is largely visible to the public with vast column-free spaces, soaring cantilevers, and towering scoreboards. Improvements to fan experience for safety, circulation, and comfort include structural repairs throughout, widened concourses, additional restrooms and concessions, and “cool zones” designed to combat the Texas heat. The project was awarded the Eminent Conceptor in the 2016 American Council of Engineering Companies (ACEC) Engineering Excellence Awards (EEA).

Erin KuehtErin Kueht, P.E. is a senior associate and structural project manager at Walter P Moore. She is an Aggie football season ticket holder for over 12 years and was the junior project manager for the redevelopment project. She has M.S. and B.S. in Civil Engineering from Texas A&M University.
