Supporting the Roof

November 19 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$10

Walk past the construction site of the New Arena at Seattle Center and you’ll see the historic 1962 World’s Fair roof floating in mid-air, but there’s no magic going on here. So how exactly does the 44-million-pound roof remain intact, in the heart of Seattle Center, while a brand-new arena is constructed underneath? Join representatives from Mortenson Construction, Thorton Tomasetti, and CAA Icon as we take a deep dive into the engineering and science behind holding up the iconic roof that NHL Seattle fans will call home. Gates open at 6:15 p.m. for a reception in Lower Building 4 featuring alcoholic beverages for purchase and complimentary light bites. Presentation begins at 7 p.m. in PACCAR IMAX Theater.
