This event is sold out. Sorry, no walk-ins
This is a special event for IFMA-SV MEMBERS ONLY.
New Levi’s Stadium – a Hard Hat Tour of the 49ers Stadium
Reminder to all who have registered for this event - arrive by 3:45 p.m. so that you have time to park and put on your safety items before the tour starts. The tour will begin at 4 p.m. promptly and last for 1.5 hours.
Our Special Guest, Jamie Matthews, Mayor of Santa Clara, will be on hand to welcome us after the tour and will provide a few remarks about what the stadium will mean to not only the City of Santa Clara but to Silicon Valley and beyond. He has been Mayor since 2010 but has worked tirelessly since 2006 as a member of the city council to help establish the Santa Clara Stadium Authority and get the support of city residents for building the stadium at the Great America site.
After the tour, there will be food and beverages.
For safety reasons, the tour is limited to 40 people. The tour is sold out. NO WALK-INS ALLOWED. Do not be late as the tour will leave on time and you will not be able to catch up.
Once you register, you will receive parking instructions and a liability waiver to fill out and return prior to the event to keep the tour on schedule. Appropriate dress IS ABSOLUTELY REQUIRED to participate in the tour – long pants and closed toe shoes – no sandals or high heels. A full description of mandatory and unacceptable attire is included with the waiver that will be sent to each person who registers. Hard hats and safety vests will be provided.
The tour will be led by representatives of the Turner-Devcon JV who are building the stadium which is expected to open in the summer of 2014 and will host Super Bowl 50 in 2016. This state-of-the-art, $1.2 billion project, was designed by HNTB, an internationally renowned architecture firm, to be environmentally friendly and technologically advanced. Accordingly, it boasts every amenity a world class facility could have including an advanced wi-fi network, IPTV and colossal HD video boards measuring over 13,000 square feet. With a goal of LEED Gold in mind, the stadium will have a green roof and high efficiency solar panels will produce 400 kilowatts of electricity, enough over the course of a year to offset the power consumed by the stadium during 49ers home games. The 1,850,000 sq. ft. stadium will be light and airy with open pedestrian plazas, commercial community space, concourses that average 63 feet wide and a seating capacity for 69,000 (with a potential for 73,000 for special venues).
