The University of South Florida has chosen Manhattan Construction Company, H.J. Russell & Company, and DuCon LLC as the construction manager for the school’s new football stadium to be built at the Tampa campus.

A groundbreaking ceremony will be held during the university’s annual Homecoming Week celebration, scheduled for Oct. 14 to 19.

With vast experience with college and professional stadiums nationwide, the team has also built facilities in the Tampa Bay region and Florida and collaborated on over $1.2 billion in projects with USF’s design team, Populous.

The selected team has worked extensively with college and professional stadiums throughout the country, numerous facilities in the Tampa Bay region and state of Florida and has previously partnered on more than $1.2 billion in projects with USF’s design team, Populous.

“Choosing a construction management team is big step forward in our process to deliver a world-class stadium that will transform the future of our university and the on-campus experience,” USF vice-president of athletics Michael Kelly and USF Foundation CEO Jay Stroman, the co-chairs of the stadium planning committee, said in a statement. “After conducting a thorough review of each proposal we received for the project, we’re excited to get started on our partnership with a team that brings a proven track record of success in Manhattan Construction Company, H.J. Russell & Company and DuCon, LLC.”

Projects the team has worked on include football stadiums for the Dallas Cowboys, Texas A&M, Texas Tech and the ongoing renovations at Florida State University.  Manhattan also provided construction management services for enhancements to Raymond James Stadium in Tampa in 2016.

USF’s on-campus stadium is scheduled to open in time for fall 2027.  More information on the project is available here.
