HNTB, in collaboration with Moseley Architects, is currently engaged with William & Mary to revitalize the historic Kaplan Arena – long considered the heartbeat of Tribe Athletics.
The renovation will include a new entrance and lobby, an enhanced student section with a lounge that all students can use throughout the year, upgraded spectator seating, premium hospitality areas, a courtside club, concourse club seating as well as a new academic center. The project also includes a state-of-the-art score board featuring video replay, ribbon boards, and a new sound system, improvements to concession stands, bathrooms and locker rooms, among other priority areas. The arena will remain open during all phases of construction.
The new 36,000-square-foot, multiuse Sports Performance Center will feature a strength and conditioning area, two hydrotherapy pools, and a sports medicine space with ample room to evaluate and treat sports injuries. The center will also provide the basketball and volleyball teams with a new practice area housing a full-sized court.
