Sports + Entertainment

We build projects that captivate, excite, and energize. From constructing an 18,000-seat multi-purpose indoor arena to an immersive entertainment venue, our facilities create experiences that connect communities in only ways that sports and entertainment can.

Sports Construction Projects

Whether a project needs to maximize seating, enhance athletic play, or celebrate a team’s heritage, our team focuses on the details that matter most. Our goal is to provide a dynamic setting where both history and memories are made.

PPG Paints Arena

When the Pittsburgh Penguins hockey club needed a new home, the team called on PJ Dick for their $244 million project. We partnered with Hunt Construction Group to provide preconstruction and construction management at risk services for the arena, a project that was accelerated for the NHL scheduler. The 18,300-seat venue is the first LEED Gold–certified NHL arena in the U.S.

UPMC Cooper Fieldhouse

Duquesne University hired PJ Dick to build their modern 23,000-square-foot sports facility on campus. It features 3,500 seats, a club lounge, luxury boxes, concessions, HD video boards, and four fan corners — all designed to bring the game to life like never before.

University of Pittsburgh

Peterson Sports Complex and Addition

PJ Dick constructed a 20,000-sf expansion of an existing support building at the Petersen Sports Complex. The project includes new locker rooms, coaches’ offices, team meeting spaces, and new MEP systems.

UPMC Events Center

This $35 million all-purpose facility at Robert Morris University gave the school an ultra-contemporary and mega-functional sports venue. The eye-catching building contains a 180,000-square-foot basketball arena, strength and conditioning rooms, a practice court, locker rooms, an 11,000-square-foot conference space, and a practice court.

Point Park University Playhouse

The new yet already iconic playhouse gives Point Park University a one-of-a-kind facility for hosting a wide variety of events. The jaw-dropping 92,000-square-foot building in downtown Pittsburgh features an impressive collection of three-theater spaces, a sound stage, prop shop, costume shop, and cafe.

Miracle League Field

PJ Dick was proud to provide construction management services for this unique project — a baseball field and support facilities for differently abled teams and players. Its custom-designed rubberized field surface is wheelchair friendly.

Peterson Events Center

The renovation of the Petersen Events Center’s basketball suite proved to be a triumph in fast-tracking. With the venue fully occupied during construction, the PJ Dick team began design in January and was fully finished by September 1. Our construction management at risk services involves careful logistics planning and coordination.

Ohio State University

Jerome Schottenstein Center and Ohio Stadium

For a perennially winning school like Ohio State, building a new multipurpose area demanded the best construction possible. PJ Dick served as general trades contractor for the project, a 588,000-square-foot facility with a sports hall of fame, auxiliary gym, locker and dressing rooms, and 52 luxury suites for donors.

Keystone Shooting Center

Jerome Schottenstein Center and Ohio Stadium

This state-of-the-art, veteran-owned facility features a world-class indoor shooting range, training center, and firearm superstore. Built for both first-timers and seasoned shooters, the site can accommodate classes and private events. PJ Dick worked closely with the owners to meet their unique safety specifications.
