The article even made it into the Oregonian today, which gave me quite a shock while going through the Sports section this morning.

KPTV's piece: http://www.kptv.com/story/37871240/port ... c-facility

The Viking Ship woodwork in the interior, the somewhat open concourse, the beer rails (if beer is being served... eh, I can dream), this is anything but an arena shrouded in darkness.

Which makes me wonder if something's happened to Broadway Vik.

As I did and would agree with you. In fact, I think it was more impressive live than even the picutres show it to be. The building has a "good feel" to it.

Attended two games tonight and what a showcase for local high school basketball talent and for Portland State University! By the way, 2 ex-PSU head coaches were in the house, Ken Bone (wearing Pepperdine atire) and Tyler Geving (in University of Portland atire) attended the MLK invitational. Both must have been scouting for their present Universities. I'm sure they were wishing the Viking Pavilion had been built during their tenures at the Park Blocks!

EDUCATION RENOVATION – 1st Place
Portland State University Stott
Center Renovation, Viking Pavilion

http://djcoregon.com/news/2019/05/23/ed ... -pavilion/


Location: Portland
Cost: $42 million
Start Date: April 2016
Completion Date: October 2018
Owner/Developer: Portland State University
Architect: Woofter Architecture, Perkins+Will
Engineers: KPFF Consulting Engineers
General Contractor: Fortis Construction


Nestled in the heart of downtown Portland, Portland State University is a vibrant campus bustling with student activity. Campus leadership saw the need to renovate the existing Stott Center facility that was originally built in 1966 and home to the school’s athletic, health, and physical education programs. In addition, new construction needed to take place on a large multipurpose arena called the Viking Pavilion. The total project included an 87,200-square-foot renovation and a 55,000-square-foot expansion on the urban campus.

The renovation included a new Viking Athletics Hall of Fame, a renovated weight room, updated locker rooms, a café, and remodeled athletics administration offices. Additionally, there were five new general-purpose classrooms built, along with student advising, tutoring, and study spaces. The project also included the addition of a new sports medicine center for student athlete treatment that was developed in partnership with Oregon Health & Science University. The 3,400-seat multipurpose area provides space for hosting academic symposiums, concerts, dinners, graduations, trade shows, and much more.

Sustainability played a major role in the project from beginning to end. The Stott Center and Viking Pavilion earned LEED Gold certification and has several notable achievements. These include a 25 percent reduction in annual energy costs through efficient mechanical and lighting systems, a 46 percent water use reduction with water-saving flush and flow fixtures, reduced refrigerant emissions, and the use of reflective roofing and pavement materials. Furthermore, 98 percent of new wood on the project is Forest Stewardship Council certified.

The $42 million project was completed on time and on budget in October 2018. To help stay on schedule, the project was phased into four permit and bid packages with 12 sets of occupancy safety plans. Adhering to these plans helped ensure that students, visitors, and faculty were kept safe and up to date throughout the various phases of construction, in addition to helping streamline documentation for city approval. Fortis Construction Project Manager Justin Cook shared that working as an integrated, co-located team on the project was one of the highlights during the construction process and this team continuity helped create a beautiful end product.

“Situated in the middle of the PSU campus on a tight urban site, the modernization and expansion provides enhanced support for both PSU athletic and academic programs while improving access, safety and efficiency,” Cook said.

To date, the response to the completed project has been fantastic. “We have had an overwhelmingly positive response on the new arena from all of our fans, boosters, alums that have come back. It is something we are very proud of and think turned out even better than we hoped,” said Mike Lund, associate athletic director at PSU.
