Levi’s Stadium
Santa Clara, CA

The new home to the San Francisco 49ers is one of the most technologically advanced stadiums in the world. Levi’s stadium features 1,250 wireless access points making it one of the most covered stadiums in the US. Visitors can now enjoy high definition instant replays, locate the nearest concession stand or bathroom, order food and merchandise from any seat in the stadium and have it delivered all from their mobile device.


For Sunbelt Controls, project requirements included: 700,000 SF of enclosed/conditioned/ventilated space, 23 air handler units, 26 kitchen exhaust units, 23 McQuay water cooled VAV units, 90 WSHP averaging 4 tons, and Greenheck mixed flow vaneaxials 4 x 80,000 CFM.

The stadium was built as four independent projects running concurrently so all construction teams had to work together very closely to meet the scheduled completion — and in the end, there were no delay-of-game penalties. Due to a tight schedule, logistics were a key challenge of the job. Additionally, the unconventional structure of the stadium meant there was virtually no storage space on the job site.

Sunbelt Controls is proud to have hurdled these challenges and deliver a win for one of our hometown teams. Today, the 49ers $1.3 billion dollar, 68,500 seat stadium stands as one of the most green and high-tech stadiums in the world.
