First Roofing Structure Installed at Fort Lauderdale Stadium

Progress on Fort Lauderdale Stadium and Training Complex is continuously being made ahead of Inter Miami CF’s 2020 MLS debut in March.  

Today, Nov. 1, the team of more than 200 on-site construction professionals successfully installed the first roof structure for the stadium.   

This milestone comes mere weeks after the stadium went vertical with steel columns. That was followed by the installation of components of the secondary frame of the metal building and the horizontal structural members designed to provide lateral support for wall panels.  

The 46-acre facilities will feature the 18,000-capacity stadium that will serve as the home of Inter Miami CF until the completion of the Club’s Miami stadium. Fort Lauderdale Stadium will continue to house the Club’s USL League One team on a permanent basis. 

Grass installations are expected to take place by mid-November, including for the official playing field as well as the training fields being built on the facilities.    

The Training Complex – where Inter Miami’s MLS, USL, and Academy teams will permanently train – is also taking shape. The 50,000-square-foot building continues to undergo steel, concrete, and roofing installations.   

The Lockhart Construction Team, Manica Architecture, Perez & Perez Architects Planners, Bliss & Nitray, Inc. Structural Engineers, SDM Consulting Engineers, Flynn Engineering Services and EDSA, Inc. will continue their work to actualize this project before Inter Miami’s 2020 debut.
