PORTFOLIO

Georgia Institute of Technology McCamish Basketball Arena

The design-build renovation of the former 10,000-seat Alexander Memorial Coliseum has transformed the facility into a state-of-the-art collegiate basketball playing and viewing venue. Creating a sense of pageantry and excitement, as well as a better means of access and ticket collection, is the new grand entrance. The seating bowl has been reconfigured to provide better site-lines, wider seats, more leg room, and code compliant aisles, risers and treads. An upper deck of approximately 2,000 seats has been added as well. The new bowl also includes a state-of-the-art, center-hung scoreboard, a 360-degree ribbon board, and a new sound system. Also included are a concourse expansion with upgraded concessions, bathrooms, a team apparel store and other amenities. The arena’s MEP systems have been replaced with high-efficiency systems. This project has achieved LEED Gold® certification.
