This facility for the College of Charleston includes an arena with a 5,000-seat capacity for varsity basketball. The 17,500 sq m (188,000 sq ft) project was constructed on a tight urban site in downtown Charleston and is tied into the college's existing physical education, recreation, and athletic facilities. Challenging design and construction constraints in conjunction with high seismic and hurricane wind design criteria were addressed with innovative structural designs to deliver outstanding value.
