Aristeo was contracted to place concrete foundations, including formwork, for a new 70,000 square foot basketball arena for Wayne State University. The new arena will include one main basketball court with the capacity to be divided into two and seating for approximately 3,000 fans. The space will also include offices, five main locker rooms, training rooms, concessions and other ancillary spaces.
Throughout the project, Aristeo’s team adapted to new safety requirements after the emergence of the COVID-19 pandemic. After the jobsite reopened, Aristeo quickly revised the safety plan and procedures to incorporate daily health screenings, mandatory temperature checks, social distancing and increased sanitization of common areas. The success of our safety procedures relating to COVID-19 allowed the project to complete on schedule and with an excellent safety record of zero incidents.
