Texas A&M University Reed Arena
College Station, Texas
This arena meets the needs of an expanding university and community. Located on a 35-acre site with parking provided for over 1,500 vehicles, the facility serves as the home for the Texas Aggies basketball program, convocations, conventions, touring concerts, and family shows. The split-bowl design accommodates 12,500 for basketball and 14,000 for other events. Spectator amenities located around a continuous perimeter concourse allow for concessions, restrooms and full ADA compliance. A 12,000-SF conference and meeting room suite allows the building to serve as a full convention/exhibition center. Back-of-the-house facilities include athletic dressing, training and meeting rooms, and performer dressing areas to accommodate touring shows. The design accommodates plans for future suites to be added at the back of the lower bowl.

"Lockwood, Andrews & Newnam, Inc./LEO A DALY have made every effort to make this project a success...they have been able to combine our need for more convention, exhibit, and meeting room space with the requirements for a true multipurpose arena. They have been extremely responsive to all of our concerns on this project, and their knowledge in this type of special purpose building has proved to be invaluable."
