Benson's Contract

Recommended Posts

The Master Plan is a university-wide document, so while the athletic department would've had input, it didn't have a free hand. And as I recall the SEFCU renovations were all about athletes and nothing to do with spectators, so if there are any seating/amenities improvements proposed they're recent.

Edit - 2012 Master Plan. SEFCU arena on page 120

I thought the 'master-plan' was put together between 2010-2012 (someone please correct me if dates are off.)  Assuming this is accurate, wouldn't it have been done of McElroy's watch? Meaning the bid is going out under Benson but was planned for by others.

There is an updated master plan that is under his tenure... Athletic specific.

Exactly.  If they can, and they can if there is money, there is NO doubt that with the amenities upgrade (e.g. firecode and bathroom codes), that building can go to 6500, and that is perfect IMHO.

It wasn't much, didn't have the actual RFP, but had a contact to get the RFP document from. May have only been turf replacement. Don't remember. I look at the reporter everyday for work, but I don't get alerts for this type of stuff as it isn't what my company does. If I remember at work tomorrow I'll post. My login credentials are saved on my computer and I forget my password lol.
