Smoothie King Center Enhancements

Manning Architects, on a team with Eskew+Dumez+Ripple and AECOM, collaborated on the design and fast-track approach needed to complete multiple projects during the center’s off season. Our team proposed and executed multiple design projects focused on return on investment and priority, since the center was only available for construction in between basketball seasons. Efficient production and delivery on design documents, frequent site visits, and constant communication and receptivity, ensured that Manning and all team members were able to deliver the desired results in just six months per phase. Renovations included new internal and external media technology and meeting rooms, as well as patron experience upgrades including renovations of all existing concession stands, a new bandstand with a bar below it, sports bar, lobbies and a new entrance.
