Thornton Tomasetti performed structural design of additions and alterations to the existing field house at the Michael J. Hagan Arena for this Philadelphia university. The addition, called the Ramsey basketball Center, includes coach’s offices, locker rooms and a Hall of Fame. The project also included removal of building end walls to increase seating capacity by 1,000 and creation of a new concourse within the existing building.
All design documents were generated and delivered via the building information model platforms Revit.
