Penn State Football: Beaver Stadium Press Box Set For Minor Facelift

by on March 23, 2015 2:00 PM

The Beaver Stadium press box will be getting a makeover this offseason according to a plan recently approved by the universities' Board of Trustees.

A press box that is nothing short of a time capsule was last renovated in 1978. And while the proposed renovations won't result in massive structural changes they will assist in maintaining  functionality.

The entire project is slated to cost roughly $2 million and will include the replacement of the south elevator, replacing some windows and refurbishing other windows to improve ventilation. Additionally the project will include replacement of carpeting and other finishes, minor restroom improvements, cleaning and painting of some interior and exterior areas.

The renovations are scheduled for completion before Penn State's home opener on Sept. 12.

Penn State is also looking to raise $2.3 million required for a project in the Lasch Football Bulding that will include the creation of a nutrition bar adjacent to the weight room.

The project also includes the addition of a video projection system to the on-going $2 million lobby renovations and team auditorium with new graphics, as well as new lighting and an audio system in the team auditorium.

In January, the board approved a $12 million project to expand and renovate the Lasch locker room, equipment room and recruiting lounge.
