The $315M LA Memorial Coliseum project was completed at the end of 2019 and restored the 96-year-old stadium to its former glory, as well as modernize the facility. Funded by USC Football and Athletics, the historic stadium opened in 1923 and is home to the USC Trojans and has served as a host venue for the 1932 and 1984 Summer Olympics. It will once again host the Summer Olympics in the upcoming 2028 games. The renovation will provide seats for 77,500 including luxury boxes and club suites. To date, the project has logged more than 200,000 labor hours with 30% of the work performed by local craft workers. The field has been renamed United Airlines Field at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. In addition to the new name, the project included replacing all of the seats, new suites and concession stands, upgraded entryways and video screens, replacing electrical, mechanical, and plumbing systems and installing new field and stadium lighting.
As one of the largest venues in the world, the end goal was to provide visitors with the best experience possible regardless of the configuration or event being held. Rosendin Electric built an audio/visual solution that enables the facility to easily adjust and adapt the needs of the multitude of events hosted every year. Total flexibility was the driving force behind this project as every suite has its own controls to bring in audio and video content from anywhere in the facility, in addition to being able to act as a conference room or small event space for the owners of the suites when there are no other events taking place. Every suite is controlled with the Crestron Virtual Control platform that allows staff to deploy and update settings to every suite from one central location. This ensures that every suite is running its own program isolated from all others, and the entire system is running in a high available VMware Cluster to ensure a level of redundancy on the same level as IT systems.
The 1923 Club pays homage to the year the facility opened. It’s a rooftop deck on the seventh level that provides fans with a panoramic view of the stadium and the Los Angeles area. It can be rented for presentations, parties and other events and users have the ability to broadcast to all of the 600+ displays within the facility. The 4th floor club lounge includes a video projection system, local sound system, and four video walls that can duplicate or span content. This space is also a rentable space for events and/or parties and can also be used as a part of the overall faculty for games and concerts.
In addition to the clubs, suites, and all the general public spaces, two video conference rooms exist to ensure the facility can cover any possible application.
