Officials from Turner Construction Company recently announced that construction has begun on the new 132,000-sq. ft. event center and arena at the Alabama A&M University. The facility will include an arena with a 6,000-person capacity, locker rooms, training rooms, a Hall of Fame honoring former AAMU student athletes, and a kitchen with the capability to provide meals for campus events. The arena will host sporting events such as basketball and volleyball games, student graduation ceremonies, and other university functions. “The center will provide the university with a much-needed facility where we can host major functions, such as commencements, convocations, our annual scholarship gala, and athletic events,” said Andrew Hugine, Jr., President of Alabama A&M University. “It will be a state-of-the-art facility just off of North Memorial Parkway, and we are thrilled to be making this addition for our students and the community, which will transform the landscape of north Huntsville.” Turner is representing AAMU as the construction management agent (CMA) for the project and it is expected to be complete in 2022.
