Philips Arena Tour Recap
Members of the SEAOG YMG took a tour of Philips Arena in downtown Atlanta undergoing major renovations. Renovations included the demolition of major building columns and several upper level floors, the removal and reinstallation of tiered seating and club boxes, and the installation of "super trusses" to resupport the roof structure. Our guide from Steel-Fab summed up the renovations as "millennial-approved": more options for seating, more social areas, virtual golf, and a structure that can support the weight of a Kanye West concert. The renovations are currently in Phase 1 (of three), and will be the second largest renovation in NBA history after the completion of all phases.
