responsible for designing, specifying and observing construction for
the seating, scoreboard and sports floor specialties.

The Scope in Phase 2 included inserting a four story building into
the East end of the Arena shell that had been completed in Phase 1. The
scope also included creating three new sides to the seating bowl. A
major component of the space was a four story office building for the
SCU Athletic Department Offices.
Key features in Phase 2 include a Conference Room that doubles as a
suite for Events, an Academic Center and a Weight Training Facility for

was continuously open. With the strong coordination bewteen the
University, Devcon, The Contractor and the design team led by Paul
Roberts the project came in more than $1,000,000 under budget.
