Climate Pledge Arena
932,000 square feet
Extensive Renovation to Create the Premier Sports and Entertainment Destination in the Northwest
Audio, video, and great acoustics combine to support home-team advantage and big-name concerts at Climate Pledge Arena.
While preserving the iconic roofline of the former KeyArena, our upgrades changed the undercarriage dramatically, adding dozens of vertical lapendary baffles. A perforated metal panel on both sides of the upper deck allows fans to contribute to the noise in the bowl during a hockey game. Adjustable acoustic features include retractable 40-foot acoustic curtains, which help open up the bowl and make it louder during games while muting the echo during concerts.
Large screen video displays artfully integrate into the architecture to allow the arena to transform for different events. Audio systems and broadcast infrastructure support top-tier concerts and NHL/WNBA games. Our work included audio, video, acoustics, and broadcast systems.
