The Bears announced a massive overhaul Friday, but it doesn’t involve personnel. The team expects to break ground in March 2018 on expansion plans to their Halas Hall training facility in Lake Forest, a project that will include a 162,500 square foot football operations addition and a 30,600 square foot remodeling project to the current building. HOK will design and Mortenson Construction is the general contractor for the project, which is expected to be completed in August 2019. The expansion includes a 13,000 square foot indoor turf space with a video projection wall and virtual reality room. The weight room will be expanded by 2,000 square feet, and the equipment room, recovery space and nutrition and fuel station will double in size. The sports medicine space will expand to four times its current size and will include a hydrotherapy pool.
