GREEN BAY - The $143 million renovation project at Lambeau Field is 98 percent complete. Crews say it's set to be done by next month -- on budget.
FOX 11 joined the Stadium District Board for a tour Wednesday afternoon.
In just the past few months, the south end zone has transformed. And what fans see now, is not much different than what they'll see when it's complete.
"We actually received a certificate of occupancy for most of the building except where we're doing the finishing touches on the levels above and we got through that with no loss time injuries and on budget and on schedule. It's been fantastic," explained Stuart Zadra, Hammes Company vice president.
In addition to new suites and viewing platforms, the addition includes 7,000 new seats and 30 new concession stands.
So far, the team has invested more than $100 million into the project. Needless to say, team officials are excited to see it coming to a close.
"It's definitely in the home stretch," explained Packers spokesperson Aaron Popkey. "Very excited. Things have come into their focus here, very very nicely and from the drawing board to seeing it come together is very, very exciting for the organization."
It's also exciting for those on the season ticket waiting list. Popkey says the majority of the new seats will go to new season ticket holders.
He says the team has gone through more than 5,000 names. So far he says roughly 3,800 have accepted.
Popkey hopes to have the final numbers in a few weeks.
But whether you're in the bowl or enjoying the new addition, officials say Lambeau will remain a great experience.
However, that may not be the case for opposing teams.
"More than 80,000 fans cheering the Packers on, I think it will be pretty dramatic in that top area. It's got metal behind it, that's going to reflect the sound and I'm sure people will be pounding on that metal, cheering on Aaron Rogers and the Packers," Zadra said.
The project is expected to be complete next month.
