Skanska, in a joint venture with Megen Construction Company, is providing preconstruction and construction services for the 220,000-SF renovation of the multi-purpose arena that is the home venue of UC Bearcats men’s basketball, women’s basketball and women’s volleyball. The existing seating layout will be transformed from its current configuration to a modern 360° seating bowl for approximately 11,500 spectators with new concessions and restrooms, a new upper-level concourse with its own fan amenities, expanded food and beverage options and a new main entrance and plaza with centralized ticketing and guest services. The renovated arena will also feature expanded premium seating options, including a courtside club, arena club and concourse club as well as enclosed suites, loge seating, a new Bearcats Lounge and super suites. The men’s and women’s basketball locker rooms will also be renovated. The project will pursue LEED Silver certification.
