When the Sacramento Kings basketball team outgrew their temporary arena in the
late 80’s, a new facility was planned by the Sacramento Sports Association. As there was
no other similar venue in the Sacramento market, they needed a facility that could
handle a wide range of events outside the normal basketball games. Also, SSA required
their own office space, additional space for the King’s management, luxury boxes,
multiple food service concessions, locker and training rooms, a restaurant, and a private
SSA contacted ACCO for assistance when the plans were still in an early schematic stage.
Working closely with Rann Haight Architects, ACCO designed a system that
allowed for maximum flexibility to serve trade shows and luncheons of 500 people to
rock concerts and evangelist meetings with a full house of 17,000. In addition to this, there
was the challenge of simultaneously keeping the patrons comfortable while providing
special ventilation for events that include indoor fireworks, tractor pulls, ice shows, circus animal acts, and moto cross racing.
Four built up DX systems serve the Main Bowl and Concourse level through a duct system that
was integrated into the design of the overhead catwalk network. Seven large package units,
recovered from the previous arena, were included in the design as a cost saving. These units
serve the offices, support areas, back of house, ticket offices, and luxury boxes.
