Institutional Projects – Sports Venue

Allen County War Memorial Coliseum

Location: Fort Wayne, IN

Completed: October 2002

Cost: $34.5 million

Size: 93,600 SF (renovation)

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.
