Race fans at this year’s Rolex 24 At Daytona got a sneak peek into Daytona International Speedway’s DAYTONA Rising redevelopment project. The west end of the frontstretch grandstands, containing 40,000 new seats, wider concourses and two injector entrances officially opened, while construction continues on the reminder of the facility.
With the Daytona 500 on the horizon, Jim Renne discusses what fans will be experiencing at this year's event on the Fields of Green blog.
DAYTONA RISING: FROM AGING TRACK TO HI-TECH MOTORSPORTS MECCA By: Robert Sorokanich, GIZMODO Daytona International Speedway is undergoing its first major renovation in 55 years. Its first ever, really. On a recent visit, we found out just how far 40 million tons of steel, miles of fiber, and an eye towards the future will take an aging behemoth—one that can swallow 14 football stadiums whole.
During a recent trip to Korea, Sung Jung, Project Manager and Senior Associate at ROSSETTI was interviewed by the Kyunghyang Shinmum Daily Newspaper on the importance of integrating sports anchored developments into the community.
BRIGHAM YOUNG UNIVERSITY MARRIOTT CENTER At 40 years old, the Marriott Center at Brigham Young University is known for its great basketball culture and sold out games. To keep a new generation of Cougar fans happy, BYU hired ROSSETTI to improve its guest comfort for the north court-side seating. This involved not only swapping out bench seating with padded chairs, but also increasing leg room by designing deeper treads. ROSSETTI performed a detailed study to arrive at a solution, mitigate secondary implications and determine the ROI.
