Pinnacle Bank Arena
The 16,500-seat West Haymarket Arena possesses 2,400 tons of cooling and has the potential for future expansion to 18,000 seats. This arena replaces the Bob Devaney Sports Center (13,595 seats) as the new home of the Nebraska Cornhusker Men's and Women's basketball teams. The Waldinger Corporation completed the entire mechanical and plumbing packages including the design-assist phase of pre-construction. We worked hand-in-hand with engineers to create an efficient, constructible and cost-effective design. The Building Information Modeling (BIM) process involved our detailers developing 100% 3D HVAC and plumbing models for coordination, pre-fabrication and field production. This arena is constructed within the confines of an active railroad system so all of our employees on site were trained and certified to work near railroads.
