Plaza improvements provide arena with needed refreshing

Herald-Dispatch -Over time, all buildings need to be refreshed. Years of use take their toll on exteriors and interiors alike. The Mountain Health Arena, which opened in 1977, is no exception.

For more than a generation, the plaza outside the main entrance was mostly an open space of concrete that provided little visual distinction. Now that has changed, and the area looks better for it.

Plaza improvements were the result of the work of several designers and companies. Architects were Edward Tucker Architects & Associates with Phoebe Randolph as the project lead and GAI Consultants Inc. with David Gilmore and James Yost as the project leads.

The contractor was Wolfcreek Construction, with Danny Neuhart as project manager. The fountain was built by Fountain Technologies.
