Louisville Arena Topped Out and On Schedule
Posted by Alison Trost on March 30, 2010 at 8:29 AM.

Yesterday a “topping off” ceremony was held at the Louisville (Ky.) Arena to mark the installation of the last piece of structural steel. The arena is the future home of the University of Louisville men’s and women’s basketball teams. This 22,000 seat venue is set to open in November and officials with the project manager M.A. Mortenson Co. promise that the project will be completed by late October.

The project has also gone green, according to, with the installation of high-efficiency toilets, low-flow shower heads, energy efficient windows and a light-colored roof, which allows for heat gain in the summer and reduced heat loss in the winter.
