The Cutting Edge of Arena Facilities
“Everyone who has walked through the complex has been blown away by it. It’s fantastic. The ceiling is 47 feet high, so it feels like a mini-coliseum. Overall, we have probably saved between $5 million and $7 million by going with the Sprung structures. That’s huge.”
