This project consisted of the complete demolition of the existing press box and constructing a new state-of-the-art press box with an expanded area of 12,000 s.f.
The new Hoffman Press Box was constructed above the existing grandstands of Michie Stadium, 120 ft. off the ground. The building superstructure consists of an intricate structural steel frame system comprised of 430 tons of steel anchored at the top of twelve existing concrete columns. The new Press Box has a gear driven elevator added to the outside of the existing stadium which travels from the street level up six stories through the new press box. The elevator shaft was constructed of concrete with reinforcing steel, which was designed to be free standing. The elevator foundation is set into the existing rock and anchored to the ground with twenty 18 ft rock anchor bolts.
