PNC Arena


Our relationship with the home of the Carolina Hurricanes goes back to the mid 2000’s, as since that time we have completed three (3) facility condition assessments for the building owner, The Centennial Authority. As employees of Populous, the Partners of VSG were engaged by the Centennial Authority in 2007 to conduct a full Facility Condition Assessment of the PNC Arena (formerly the RBC Center), home of both the Carolina Hurricanes NHL club and the NC State Wolfpack Men’s Basketball team. The scope of work included architecture and interiors, major systems, structure, roof, technology, foodservice, vertical transportation, and included a capital expense matrix. We then returned in 2011 for the same work, and won the work again in 2017 through a competitive bid process.  In addition to the three (3) Facility Condition Assessments, we also conducted a Design Feature Analysis in 2011 that compared their guest amenities with those of similar, but newer, facilities.
