The upgrades will include concourse improvements by expanding the width, sightlines to the court, concession options, and restrooms. Thrash will be building a club level that provides premium ticket holders a dedicated entrance and lobby that leads down to a 6,000 square foot sideline to sideline club with nearly 580 club seats and loge suites for 80 people.

The architects at Dale Partners and AECOM Sports have also included exterior entry plaza upgrades, a relocation of Lakeview Drive, new office space for staff, and increased accessibility. The design has two grand lobbies announcing the entrances on the east and west sides that will offer views directly into the seating bowl.

Project Manager Justin Gordon of Thrash Commercial Contractors expressed, “This project is extremely important to us. It means so much to the company and the school. Our staff is the best in the state, and we’re ready to take on the challenge. There’s nothing simple about this renovation, but our staff has planned and delivered on countless occasions and that’s what we plan on doing here. The bulldog fans are in for a treat.”

Construction is expected to begin at the latter half of February 2022.
