CJG Engineers provided structural services for the 170,883 square foot multi-purpose arena. The Arena may be configured with 5,794 stadium seats and 80' x 140' arena floor, or 1,312 seats can be retracted, resulting in an arena floor of up to 120' x 180' with 4,290 fixed seats remaining. The arena floor is structural concrete. A panelized wood floor is quickly assembled on top of the concrete slab to accommodate basketball games. Other flooring surfaces can be easily added to the concrete sub-floor including 3" thick bark mulch for agricultural exhibitions as well as carpet or “astro-turf” for special shows or exhibitions. The building also showcases a full service kitchen, as well as an entry lobby containing ticket booths, building offices, and access to an elevator leading to the upper stands.
