The new multi-purpose Mosaic Stadium, which is being built in the city of Regina in Canada is now substantially complete.
The Stadium is home to the Saskatchewan Roughriders Canadian Football League team.
The venue has a standard capacity of 33,000 and will be expandable to 40,000. The Stadium will also offer wider individual seats, a sunken bowl to ease spectator access, expansive concourses, concession and hospitality offerings including a general admission lounge and premium options which include 38 suites for corporate partners.
The Stadium design includes a translucent spectator roof and open south end zone connecting the stadium to the community and creating a feeling of spaciousness, while providing an improved level of comfort for all users.
Construction of the stadium began in June 2014 with substantial completion achieved in August 2016.
Regina’s Mayor Michael Fougere praised PCL Construction for having reached the project milestone – the first phase of the Regina Revitalization Initiative.
We dared to dream about creating one of the most elite facilities of its kind in the country, something we can all be very proud of.
We have achieved a great milestone and I am proud of everyone involved in the entire project, especially our numerous City employees and PCL.
Mayor Fougere said it’s now time to turn attention to testing the operation and event plans prior to the official opening in the summer of 2017.
Although a significant amount of work is still required, substantial completion means that the facility can now start to be tested for its intended use.
Outstanding work includes:
- Furniture, fixtures and equipment;
- Site preparation and construction of the Commons (exterior ground-level plaza)
- Food and beverage concession and kitchen areas;
- Broadcast cabling and communications;
- Locker room and administrative areas for the Saskatchewan Roughrider Football Club;
- Exterior ramp cladding in the northeast and northwest sections of the stadium.
