Arena Capital Improvements Planning

In 2014 the NHL’s Tampa Bay Lightning hired B&D—in conjunction with Generator Studio and Mortenson Construction—to analyze capital improvements to Amalie Arena and to develop associated revenue projections. Our scope of work entailed a comparative review of peer NHL facilities, identifying and recommending market-responsive premium seating products, analyzing food and beverage offerings, and developing a financial analysis that empowered the Lightning to prioritize improvements in an informed manner. Additionally, we assessed the team’s 20-year Capital Improvement Plan, helping the Lightning evaluate future capital improvement exposures in consideration of the lease agreement.
