MSU Davis Wade Stadium

The Project

Originally constructed in 1914, Davis Wade Stadium, home of the Mississippi State University Bulldogs football team, is the second-oldest stadium in Division I football. In 2012, construction began on a $75-million expansion of the north end zone and renovation of the west side concourse. The renovation work, completed in August of 2014, increased the capacity of the stadium, created new concession areas and restrooms, and built a new west side concourse.

As a result, Davis Wade Stadium is now the largest football stadium in Mississippi and has a modern new look created with BENCHMARK by Kingspan insulated metal panels (IMPs). This single building material meets architects’ requirements for aesthetics, exterior skin, weather barrier, and insulation.

Designwall 2000

A Winning Approach

BENCHMARK’s wide palette was also a key reason for specifying Designwall 2000, as it offered numerous creative possibilities for the Davis Wade Stadium design team. It also had the size, color, and details needed for inclusion of one of the largest high- definition Jumbotron video screens in the nation. More than 30,000 square feet of IMPs were installed on this project.


Ideal For a Fast Track Timeline

Insulated metal panels can be installed any time of year, even during periods of inclement weather. By eliminating the weather as a potential delaying factor, the owner saves money through increased build speed and earlier project completion.
