Overview

Our team provided a structural concept review and design for this 8,500-seat arena for ice hockey and basketball, which features a roof that spans 230 feet and a diamond-shaped steel support system. The arena has extensive facilities for many other varsity sports (consolidating 30 sports for men and women) and a sports medicine program.

In addition, we designed the facility to accommodate university convocations, commencement activities and major addresses. Integrated with the building’s east façade are 4,700 bleacher seats for the adjacent Alumni Stadium and a two-level press box structure, with private boxes and accessible seating, that overlooks both the arena and the stadium. A separate gymnasium with 1,000 seats serves the women’s basketball team and provides locker facilities, function rooms, coaches’ offices and administrative spaces.
