Henderson Engineers provided mechanical, electrical, plumbing, fire and life safety, security, and architectural lighting design services for the 650,000 SF, $272 million new arena and practice facility for the Sacramento Kings. The project achieved many design firsts, including an under-seat air distribution system for the seating bowl, the first within the continental US, as well as being the first entirely solar-powered arena in the world. Other key components of this 17,500-seat arena include new locker room facilities, practice courts, suites, restaurant/clubs, concessions, restrooms, administrative offices, retail, press and media facilities, central plant, and parking garage. This project is LEED Platinum certified.
