Allen County War Memorial Coliseum
Location: Fort Wayne, IN
Completed: October 2002

In addition to a number of infrastructure upgrades, the facility added 2,200 +/- upper deck seats, 24 suites, club seats, food service and restrooms for the above, new access to the arena floor, and a reconfiguration to the arena level seating. A significant element of the construction work involved raising the existing roof (approximately 2,000,000 lbs.) some 45 feet vertically in order to accommodate the new upper deck seating and suites.
