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.
