Dolphins Continue To Work On Improvements To Hard Rock Stadium, Like Audio, Suites
The Dolphins are "still working on smaller improvements" to Hard Rock Stadium, "mainly an overhaul of their suites, but overall the building seems to be in great shape," according to Jason Lieser of the PALM BEACH POST. Dolphins President & CEO Tom Garfinkel said, “The sound -- I think we had some challenges last year with some of the audio. We’re working on that to make that better for the fans, as well as where the speakers point. They point toward the stands so you can’t really hear anything when you’re on the field, maybe in some of the front rows. We’re working on adjusting that to get the sound calibrated better." He added, "In terms of the roof, we had a couple of leaks that were coming from signage that we had up there. We’ve been working on it so when it rains, we don’t get any drips on people." Meanwhile, the Dolphins have "planted more than 1,000 trees outside the stadium and upgraded some of the surrounding areas." The team is also in the "process of building promenades and walkways leading in from the parking lot." One of the next things on Garfinkel’s list is to "create pedestrian bridges and tunnels to reduce the ways in which people and cars obstruct each other getting into the stadium." The team "hopes to have those in place" for the '18 season (PALM BEACH POST, 6/9).
