Upgrades to Vivint Smart Home Arena to get underway

The construction phase for significant improvements to Vivint Smart Home Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah, will begin on the main plaza and ticket box office lobby on March 20 after the facility serves as the site of the NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Championship First and Second Rounds.

The installation of construction fencing on the northeast corner of the plaza, the closure and temporary relocation of the main ticket box office, and the demolition and removal of the concrete bridge in front of the main Door 5 entry will be tangible signs to the start of the US$125m arena renovation.

The majority of the construction will begin at the conclusion of the current Utah Jazz basketball season with anticipated completion by fall 2017. Events at the arena, including major concerts, will continue as planned.

“We are excited to begin construction on the renovation and look forward to seeing the transformation of the arena over the next several months,” says Steve Starks, president of the Utah Jazz and Larry H Miller Sports & Entertainment. “The construction may cause some temporary inconveniences for our guests so we ask for everyone’s patience and understanding through the process. Inside the arena, we will continue to a full array of guest services along with a line-up of great sports and entertainment events, including Jazz basketball. At the conclusion of the season, the arena will be closed as we upgrade the building amenities for a fall re-opening.”

Okland Construction Company, a family-owned, regional general contracting and construction management company based in Salt Lake City, has been selected as the general contractor for the arena project. “Okland Construction is proud to be part of the Vivint Smart Home Arena renovation,” says Brett Okland, president of Okland Construction. “We are grateful to the Miller family, the Utah Jazz, and Larry H Miller Sports & Entertainment for their significant contribution to our community. We are delighted to be a part of the renovation of this acclaimed venue and to work with our subcontractor partners to make it a success.”
