During the current offseason, the Houston Texans are working on NRG Stadium renovations that affect several behind-the-scenes areas.
The work taking place at NRG Stadium this offseason is aimed at modernizing several behind-the-scenes areas, specifically team amenities. Offices and meeting rooms are being upgraded through the project, while the organization is overhauling its team cafeteria and expanding its training room.
This marks the first major renovation in years for some of these amenities, and should allow the Texans to provide more modernized team facilities. More from HoustonTexans.com:
“There’s a lot of construction going on,” head coach Bill O’Brien said on SportsRadio 610’s Triple Threat show. “They’re redoing the cafeteria, they’re knocking out some walls in the training room to add more room, they’re redoing the team meeting room. Our offices are being flipped so there’s a lot of work being done.”
The construction began in the offseason but ramped up once players and coaches finished up the nine-week offseason program this month. The summer project is a major transformation, the first extensive renovation of the office and team areas in 15 years.
The vision behind the office reorganization was to create a more effective and efficient working space for both the business and football operations departments. The team areas, such as the cafeteria and training room, needed updating in order to stay current with other state-of the-art NFL facilities for the upcoming season and beyond.
NRG Stadium originally opened as Reliant Stadium in 2002.
