Completed and Cancelled Projects

Crisler Arena Renovation

Overview

Built in 1967, Crisler Arena is a multi-purpose venue with a seating capacity of approximately 13,800 used for academic, athletic, and entertainment events. The arena has received minor renovations since construction, and we now propose addressing its highest priority infrastructure needs, including life safety, mechanical and electrical. The project will include:  replacement of the roof and asbestos abatement as needed; new fire detection, alarm, and suppression systems; a new smoke evacuation system; emergency egress lighting; replacement of the heating and ventilation units; and building electrical system upgrades. The project will also replace the seats in the lower and upper bowl, including the addition of seating meeting the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act, as well as relocate and widen aisles and add hand rails to the aisles.
