Commercial Construction Services Project Description:

The interior of the existing Oakland Arena was completely gutted and renovated to accommodate basketball, ice hockey, and concerts. The new interior structure consists of five levels within a 500,000 square foot area and is equipped to handle over 19,000 patrons. The renovation construction project added 72 new luxury suites, 3 private clubs, locker rooms for both visiting and home teams and 40 concession stands.

With the exception of the roof's mechanical systems, the total structure was built from the ground up. A new N.B.A. standard lighting and sound system as well as telecommunication systems, including voice, data, MATV, broadcasting, electrical systems, and security systems bring this arena to state-of-the-art in sports entertainment.

This project was built with a 12-month design/build and construction schedule.
