December 15, 2021

Regardless of what’s going on in the economy, the sports stadium market seems immune. IbisWorld estimates that U.S. construction demand over the next five years will increase annually by nearly 2 percent to $12.3 billion. Worldwide that annual growth is projected to be closer to 22 percent and hit $18.2 billion in 2025, according to Mordor Intelligence. Turner Construction's Dewey Newton discusses trends in sports stadium renovation and construction with BD+C's John Caulfield. Newton is a Senior Vice President who heads up Turner Construction’s Sports Group.

The interview topics include:

  • What is the current state of demand for sports venue construction and renovation, and where is that demand coming from primarily?
  • What kinds of amenities are now “must haves” in sports venues?
  • Why is “desired atmosphere” rather than fan experience the first thing clients ask about?
  • What factors are determining whether sports venues are enclosed or open, and which preference is Turner getting greater demand for?
  • More sports stadia and arenas are being built as part of larger entertainment districts. Is Turner seeing this as a trend?
  • To what extent is Turner seeing demand for e-sports venues?
  • Will sports betting soon take place within sports venues?
  • What technology we'll see in future stadiums to attract younger viewers – and the associated cost/revenue considerations
  • Will touchless lead to a superior service experience?
