The University of Washington, US, has selected Seattle-based Wright Runstad and Company to develop the Husky Stadium renovation.

Work on the $250m stadium will begin next year, following approval from the university.

The project will include demolition and reconstruction of the lower bowl and south upper stands, while the track will be removed and the field lowered by 4ft to improve sight lines.

New team meeting rooms, recruiting facilities and coaches' offices will also be built into the west end of the stadium, according to seattletimes.nwsource.com.

The stadium has been designed by 360 Architecture. Turner Construction Company has been appointed for building and MKA for structural and civil needs.
