NAMC GREATER ATLANTA MEMBER BRYSON CONSTRUCTORS SELECTED AS JOINT VENTURE PARTNER IN PHILIPS ARENA RENOVATION PROJECT
NAMC member Bryson Constructors has been selected to reuild the Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia along with Turner Construction, AECOM Hunt, and SG Contracting as the Atlanta Hawks Philips Project JV Team.
The $192.5 million renovation will feature a first of its kind idea courtside, as the Hawks plan to install a bar that is within just a few feet of the floor itself. The courtside bar takes the head-lines but the overall suite and bar upgrades throughout the arena clearly cater to a broader audience. Hawks COO Thad Sheely, in addressing the as-sembled crowd, indicated that “people don’t want to be con-fined to their seats anymore,” and that he believes the senti-ment is “true for our high-end season-ticket holders, as well.”
As for off-court items, the or-ganization also introduced a 250-seat master conference room and four “breakout” rooms that come with the use of touch screen technology and top-level amenities for business operation, providing the arena with multi-use ability that can potentially aid in generating additional revenue beyond the basketball floor.
In addition, the Hawks named Atlanta-based HJ Russell & Company, in association with Legends Project Development, as the project management team.
