Posted: Updated:

CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) - Carolina Panthers president Danny Morrison told WBTV that he looking into renovating Bank of America Stadium.

Morrison said the same firm who originally designed the stadium, Populous, known as HOK Sport when the stadium was built in 1996, is leading a three-firm effort to update the stadium's master plan.

The stadium is 16 years old and is considered mid-life, Morrison said. The study into the upgrades is a year-long effort.

Morrison said he wasn't as much concerned as increasing capacity to the stadium as he is to making some technological updates.

No cost estimates or construction timetable will be made until the year-long design study is completed, Morrison said.
