Breakfast: NRG Stadium…under construction?

From new food offerings to upgrades in the clubs and suites, NRG Stadium has gone through its share of facelifts over the years, especially in anticipation of Super Bowl 51 in 2017.

This summer, the Texans home stadium is undergoing major renovations in the areas that fans typically don't see.

"There's a lot of construction going on," head coach Bill O'Brien said on SportsRadio 610's Triple Threat show. "They're redoing the cafeteria, they're knocking out some walls in the training room to add more room, they're redoing the team meeting room. Our offices are being flipped so there's a lot of work being done."

The construction began in the offseason but ramped up once players and coaches finished up the nine-week offseason program this month. The summer project is a major transformation, the first extensive renovation of the office and team areas in 15 years.

The vision behind the office reorganization was to create a more effective and efficient working space for both the business and football operations departments. The team areas, such as the cafeteria and training room, needed updating in order to stay current with other state-of the-art NFL facilities for the upcoming season and beyond.

"We have provided components that communicate our core values, philosophies and ambitions as a team and as an organization," Houston Texans president Jamey Rootes said. "Overall, we wanted to inspire all Texans, on the field and off, to give their best effort every day as we work to Win Championships, Create Memorable Experiences and Do Great Things for Houston. However, none of it would have happened without the complete support of Bob, Cal and the McNair family. They have always given us all of the resources we need to operate at a championship level for Houston and this renovation is another excellent example of their full commitment to winning."

The coaching staff returns mid-July while Texans players will report to NRG Stadium on July 25. Houston Texans Training Camp presented by XFINITY will begin on Thursday, July 26 at The Greenbrier in West Virginia
