Improvements to the Coliseum include:

Suite Renovations
Renovate four suites on each sideline for a total of eight suites. Renovations will occur in the area vacated by current concession stands.

Concourse/Concession Expansion
Additions to the Coliseum on each sideline will provide new food court areas with new concession stands, small toilets, and exterior balconies.

Concourse Elevator Addition
Addition of a single passenger elevator internal to the existing building footprint, to provide improved vertical transportation service for patrons.

New Arena Bowl Sound System
Replacement of current Coliseum seating bowl sound system with a new distributed sound system.

New Rigging/Camera Platforms
Addition of catwalks with wider platforms to provide for expanded rigging capabilities and spotlighting of events.

The goal is to complete the design scope within a six month targeted timeframe with the construction phase to commence the week of June 2, 2010 and conclude April 15, 2011.
