Housley Group was selected to construct an extensive fiber optic cable network designed to provide high-capacity video and data sservices throughout the new Q2 Soccer Stadium.
Austin Major League Q2 Soccer Stadium
The Austin FC’s new state-of-the-art $260 million-dollar 20,500 seat Q2 Stadium was scheduled to be completed in Spring 2021. Q2 Stadium was strategically designed to be a multipurpose site, including other professional and amateur sporting events outside of soccer, concerts, community activities, cultural events, and private functions such as corporate meetings and weddings.
The objective was to provide an extensive fiber optic cable network that would provide high-capacity video and data services throughout the Q2 Soccer Stadium.
We constructed an extensive 48-strand fiber optic cable network that was designed to provide that high-capacity video and data services that was surely needed throughout the Q2 Soccer Stadium. The Housley Group construction crew’s work consisted of placing over 7,000 feet of high-capacity aerial and buried underground fiber optic cable.
To have this new facility completed and ready for a Spring 2021 opening, almost every construction phase of the project required working under extremely compressed schedules with multiple work groups that worked around the clock to finish the complex on schedule. Responding to the criticality of completing the fiber optic cable construction work in a very pressing timeframe, multiple Housley Group aerial and underground crews started and completed their work ahead of schedule of 3 days.
