"We're working through the final design ..., 22 Oct 2014 [cached]
"We're working through the final design of those elements and that work will start this fall," Stuart Zadra, Hammes Co. Vice President said.
The construction company in charge of the project says much of the fabric of the stadium has been maintained.
"But it's going to be even much more of a presence than it had before," Zadra said.

The project is going to finish on time and within its budget, a rare occurrence for a huge construction project, said Stuart Zadra, project manager for Hammes Co., a Brookfield construction management which is overseeing the project for the Green Bay Packers.
Zadra said the renovation was “difficult and complicated,” but construction crews were able to overcome the obstacles and complete it on time.
“We have flexible in terms of the way we completed the project because it was not like building an office building or a hotel,” said Zadra, as he walked through the new atrium on the northern end of the stadium recently. “We were renovating a stadium that was still very active. We had people, other than construction crews, in here everyday. And some days, we had more than 60,000 people on our construction site.” Hectic work site In all, 4,200 construction workers went through the project’s safety training program. Zadra said an average of 400 workers were on the site daily, with the peak employment at about 1,200 during the winter and spring of 2002, the most hectic part of the project.
Zadra said the key to getting the project done on time and within budget were the flexibility of the construction crews and the Packers. He said construction managers were continuously looking for ways to speed up the schedule, sometimes at a higher price. “There is no doubt the economy helped this project especially as we went along. There were also a lot of construction workers looking for work and wanting to work on this job. Timing is everything and on this project, things have just worked out for the best.” Stuart Zadra, Hammes Co.
Zadra and Jones said the project benefited from a number of factors, including a sluggish economy which lowered material prices, three mild winters that allowed crews to accomplish more work than planned and a strong workforce that took a lot of pride in the project.
On the steel purchases, the bids were not only lower than expected, they were all within the same range, something that is unusual in construction bidding, Zadra said.
“There is no doubt the economy helped this project especially as we went along,” Zadra said. “There were also a lot of construction workers looking for work and wanting to work on this job. Timing is everything and on this project, things have just worked out for the best.”
Zadra said construction crews also worked very closely with the Packers and architects to limit the amount of change orders on the project. While there were some change orders, they were no where the level or for the amount of money that would be expected on a project of this size, he said.
“I think the biggest claim we have out there right now is in the thousands of dollars range,” he said.

That's because the club got plenty of bang for its buck as subcontractors eager to take part in the project produced competitive bids on everything from steel to landscaping, said Stuart Zadra, project director for the Hammes Co.
"Nobody works for free, but the opportunity to be involved in a once-in-a-lifetime project helped us put up more of a building that anyone envisioned," Zadra said.

Stuart Zadra, project director at Lambeau for the Hammes Co., said Wednesday that 1,000 workers are working each day on the job site and $900,000 worth of construction is being done on the average day.
Zadra said the most noticeable change inside the stadium is the width of the new main concourse, which is roughly three times wider than that of the original stadium built in 1957.
The project, which is expected to be completed in August 2003, has a number of facets scheduled for this summer.
Green Bay Packers officials are expected to leave their space in the administration building and move to their new quarters July 15.The team's administrative staff also will move to new offices on July 29.
Those two moves will clear the way for demolition of the administration building and private boxes on the north side of the stadium.
Zadra said two permanent gates on the west side of the stadium will be completed for the Aug. 26 exhibition game against the Cleveland Browns.
Two other gates, on the east side of the stadium, will be in use but will not be finished.The press box area located in the southwest section of the stadium will be open and ready for use in August.
Work continues on the new private boxes on the east and west sides of the stadium.
Zadra said it was not clear how many of the new general admission seats on the west side of the stadium will be available for the 2002 season.Most of the new club seating on the east side of the stadium will be ready this season.
The project is financed in part by Brown County taxpayers on a half-cent sales tax.
