Aecom and Turner to oversee 70,000-seat LA stadium

US firms Aecom and Turner Construction have been chosen to oversee construction of a 70,000 capacity stadium in California.

The venue will be the centrepiece of a 298-acre mixed-use project being built in Inglewood in downtown Los Angeles, which will be the home ground for the Los Angeles Rams American football team.

The client is the Hollywood Park Land Company, which is owned by real estate developer The Kroenke Group.

The current design of the stadium includes 275 luxury suites, more than 16,000 premium seats, and will include almost 3 million square feet of usable space.

It will also provide standing room for 27,000 spectators in addition to its 70,000 seating capacity.

The stadium, which is expected to be named the City of Champions, will be located at the heart of the new Hollywood Park entertainment district in Inglewood, which will include an adjacent 6,000 seat performance venue.

Joint ventures between Aecom and Turner have over the past 15 years been the "largest builders of sports venue projects in the world".

The project is expected to provide more than 3,500 on-site construction jobs in Inglewood.

In 1994 the Los Angeles Rams moved to St. Louis, Missouri where they have been based ever since.

Their new home will be 5 km from Los Angeles International Airport.
