This project was a renovation of the existing 8,600-seat Georgia Tech basketball complex, renamed the Henry F. McCamish Pavilion. The improvements included a concourse expansion with upgraded concessions, bathrooms, a team apparel store and other amenities. The seating bowl was entirely reconfigured to provide better sight lines, wider seats, more leg room, code-compliant aisles, risers, and treads. In addition, 2,000 seats were added to the upper deck.
Home of the WNBA Atlanta Dream’s 2018 season, the bowl includes an advanced, center-hung scoreboard, a 360-degree ribbon board and a new sound system. The facility is also the first collegiate arena with theatrical lighting. The new design incorporates a main Grand Entrance for fans to enter the building. The facility’s MEP systems were completely replaced with new highly efficient systems, utilizing full BIM coordination of the entire project and existing structure. This project achieved LEED® Gold certification.
