    How long would it take to build a new SEZ?

    Yes, another SEZ thread...
    I was wondering how long it would take to build the SEZ? Is that something they could do in 1 off season, assuming they started right after the final game? Without knowing what the SEZ will consist of and how complicated it may be.

    So you expect them to start in winter? Never gonna happen.

    I could get it done for you over a weekend.

    With the amount of threads that the SEZ has created, I am guessing 85% of CF would help for free. Taking that into consideration my guess is 3 months. It would be 2 months but the remaining 15% of CF that think the SEZ is a bad idea would protest and cause some delays.

    No, I expect them to start in late fall. Waiting until December 21st would waste too many days.

    I guess they could remove the stands and other items currently in the south endzone. But not much earthwork would happen immediately after the season ends.

    it could, just depends on how intense winter is, anything like last year and a lot of work could get done during winter

    Re: How long would it take to build a new SEZ?

    They would have to go to the Board of Regents for a vote to most likely get a loan for the money, because a 60 million donation would have to come into avoid a loan. So, let's pretend the vote already occurred.

    They would probably start in the spring, and if they did an upper deck, they probably wouldn't finish by the start of the next season. But, that is just a guess.

    Yeah this is the timetable I would expect. Remember that they were considering removing the old scoreboard because they thought it would allow them to cut down the time it took to bowl in the SEZ from 2 years to 1.

    Ya I thought the plan was to move the old scoreboard to the new soccer/track complex... Is that not happening anymore? Has anybody been to the new complex?

    I think they decided to leave it up because if they took it down the current SEZ would look too bare. I'm guessing they will eventually move it there when they officially start construction on the new SEZ.

    I would think construction would take more than one year.

    Re: How long would it take to build a new SEZ?

    I would guess they could start some work in the fall (such as pulling out the old video board), tear down of the south stands could happen immediately following the season (and with some work with the conference maybe we work to see that our home schedule ends earlier than this year, like it did last year), and maybe some early re-grading work, but most work would have to happen starting in spring i would imagine.

    Someone with the construction knowledge would have to answer- could you get at least the lower bowl done from november to august? Otherwise you're losing a LOT of seats for a season.
