Jacksonville Jaguars kick off $4 million renovation at EverBank Field

by Karen Brune Mathis, Managing Editor

The City approved a $3.16 million project Friday for the Jacksonville Jaguars' $4 million Phase II renovation of EverBank Field.

Turner Construction Co. is the contractor for the project, which includes improvements to the training room, coaches' offices, X-ray room and swimming pools, according to the permit.

The City previously approved the $80,000 interior demolition for the project, at 1 EverBank Field Drive. That permit called for demolition of 10,023 square feet of space in existing facilities, including coaches' offices, doctor areas, the hydro room and X-ray room.

As reported March 29, the Jaguars organization submitted building plans and a permit application for $2.9 million in renovations, part of the $4 million second phase of improvements the Jaguars confirmed in February for player and coaching areas at EverBank Field. The approved permit shows a cost of $3,161,465.

The second phase follows a $3 million first-phase project last year. The Jaguars said the organization paid for the first phase and will pay for the second. Completion is expected this summer.

Populous of Kansas City, Mo., is the designer.

The renovations continue the locker-room and other improvements begun last year and paid for by new owner Shad Khan. The coach and locker-room facilities had not been renovated since the stadium was built in 1995, according to the Jaguars.
