On October 10, 2010, Orlando's
Amway Center, the nationally acclaimed new home of the Orlando Magic, opened 30
days ahead of schedule and within budget.
The complex 800,000 SF
public/private venture also received LEED® Gold Certification – the first
basketball venue in the nation to do so. The developer of this massive project,
the Orlando Magic, retained SC Advisors
as the Developer's Representative. We worked closely with the Orlando Magic
through every detail of project funding approval, design, construction,
occupancy, and closeout.
In addition to the
design/build challenges inherent with a special use facility, our team
successfully navigated the daily challenges of a high profile project with
numerous public requirements including M/WBE commitments, neighborhood
programs, direct public procurement, and owner's insurance programs.
At the same time, we
effectively balanced the requirements of the City of Orlando as the owner and
the Orlando Magic as the developer-at-risk and anchor tenant.
