Ellerbe Becket, an AECOM Company, renovated this 10,000-seat arena, which it originally designed in the 1970s – now affectionately known as “The Dunk” – to attract larger regional and national events. Davis Langdon, an AECOM company, provided cost management and value engineering services on the project.

The facelift includes a new entry plaza, seating, concession stands, scoreboard, locker rooms and a pedestrian connection to the adjoining convention center.

As a result of this renovation, the Center has been awarded the first and second rounds of the 2010 Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament.
