The renovation of the Atlanta Hawks’ State Farm Arena transformed the 20-year-old venue to maximize revenue, improve the fan experience, and embody Atlanta’s unique culture. From the innovative seating concepts to a completely reimagined food and beverage experience, the 17,000-seat arena creates a new benchmark for sports venue design.
The design removed an existing wall of suites that spanned four levels on the arena’s west side and reconfigured this space into viewing terraces, multilevel connection points, open suites and the 18,000-sq.-ft. Atlanta Social suite experience. The arena, which was already among the country’s most programmed venues, now has the most inclusive and engaging experience for fans in the NBA, driving additional revenue.
SYKES scope of work included modifications to the east and west lower bowl seating, framing new north and south lower bowl precast stadia, and designing miscellaneous support framing for video boards and other mechanical systems.
