Located on the historic grounds of Exhibition Place in the heart of downtown Toronto, BMO Field is the official home of Toronto FC. With a capacity of approximately 22,000 seats, the facility covers an area of 159,693 square feet. The design incorporates player change rooms, training and weight rooms, warm-up rooms, press conference rooms, and TV production area. A special VIP club area has direct access to 500 club seats.
PCL’s design-build solution allowed for ultra-fast delivery of this project while also permitting the flexibility to deal with unforeseen soil complications, major event disturbances nearby, and design changes during construction. The finished product reflected the owner’s intent to expand the facility (an expansion that had already happened) without interrupting the playing season.
