Amway Center is also the first National Basketball Association venue to incorporate all-digital signage. It has more than 1,000 digital television monitors and the tallest high-definition videoboard in an NBA venue. Populous designed the 875,000-sq-ft arena, which was built by Hunt Construction Group under a $380-million contract.
Despite a faltering international market, 2015 and the beginning of 2016 are proving to be strong years for U.S. contractors, with steady domestic growth and only moderate strain from workforce shortages.
