Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Commission
The Oakland-Alameda County Sports Arena Renovation was a design-build, fast-track contract for the renovation of the existing Oakland Arena. The renovation included the complete gutting of the interior of the existing arena and increasing the seating from 15,025 to 19,200. Also included in the reconstruction were 3,000 club seats, 72 luxury suites, new press boxes and team concession facilities. The project required working multiple crews around the clock to meet the very difficult schedule. Community relations were vital to employ many local minority residents to form the many construction crews necessary to complete the project on time.
