Los Angeles Football Club, BMO Stadium

An unrivaled fan experience


Sports & Entertainment


Los Angeles, California




With a growing interest in soccer and the need to better reach a growing fanbase and the greater community, the Los Angeles Football Club constructed the new BMO Stadium to provide a new home for their soccer team.

Additionally, the Los Angeles Football Club wanted to compete with other soccer clubs across the country while matching the diversity of its bustling city by including a conference center, fine dining and casual restaurants, retail, office, and conference spaces, a museum, and indoor and outdoor green places as part of their new stadium.

The stadium is the first open-air stadium built in Los Angeles since the 1960s.

Southland provided design-build HVAC, plumbing, piping, and sheet metal including plans for a central plant, food service connections, and hydrotherapy in locker rooms for the new, 22,000-seat stadium. A two-story, 37,000 square foot ancillary mixed-use building was also constructed concurrently with the stadium.

Our Approach

To meet the specific air quality needs of the 15-acre complex, our team built a new central plant consisting of:

  • 2 chillers totaling 500 tons of cooling

  • 3 outdoor air handling units

  • 105 variable air volume terminal units

  • 12 variable refrigerant floor air conditioning systems

  • 10 DX split systems

  • 3 rooftop package air conditioning systems

To meet the food service connections and kitchen requirements of the numerous restaurants, we installed 14 kitchen grease exhaust and make-up air systems and four custom pollution controls systems for the overall kitchen exhaust systems.


Overall, this project met its 35 percent involvement requirement from certified minority, women-owned, small, disadvantaged, and/or disabled veteran business enterprises.
