Skanska is joining forces with Megen Construction to renovate the University of Cincinnati’s Fifth Third Arena. The Fifth Third arena is home to the University of Cincinnati Bearcats men’s and women’s basketball teams, and women’s volleyball team.
Construction on the project is anticipated to begin next month, with completion slated for November 2018. Renovations to the 26-year-old facility will include a 360-degree seating bowl, with space for 11,500 spectators.
The plan also calls for new concession stations and restrooms, an upper-level concourse with fan amenities, expanded food and beverage options, a new Bearcats lounge and super suites. A new main entrance and plaza with ticketing and guest services will also be added.
