Philips Arena Renovations Project

Philips Arena Renovations Project

Superior Rigging & Erecting had the pleasure of leading renovations at Philips Arena in Atlanta, Georgia, which hosts the Atlanta Hawks and various concerts and events. It was the 2nd largest arena renovation in the world second to Madison Square Garden.

CUSTOMER: SteelFab, Inc (Subcontracted Structural Package from AJV)

PROJECT: Structural Erection for Philips Arena Renovation Phases 1, 2 and 3 (677 tons)

According to Jason Romine, the project manager at SteelFab, Inc., surveying restrictions and construction schedule posed two critical problems for the renovations, however, Superior’s role in defining a realistic delivery schedule that was accurate was critical to the success of the project.

What Was The Result of Working with Superior Rigging & Erecting Co.?

“Collaboration, collaboration and more collaboration. I truly feel getting to know the challenges that SRE was facing and them getting to know the challenges we were facing made both of us able to support each other for the overall success of the job. Couldn’t have done this project without this top notch team!” – Jason Romine
