Post Stegeman work to begin, and they mean it this time

Wednesday April 16, 2014

The protective scaffolding around Stegeman Coloseum has been an eyesore for more than two years as the school bickered with contractors over the costs of securing the glass panels installed in 2011. We’ve been teased with a resolution before, but it looks as if work will finally begin to correct the flaw that had marred a showcase renovation.

The Red & Black reports that “Stegeman Coliseum…will be undergoing construction to retrofit the glass panel installation and eventually remove the scaffolding.”

The project was supposed to have started on Monday and should be finished July 31.

    Why did they leave two sides completely undone (unglassed) with this Stegeman project? The glassed sides look great, but it looks really cheap and undone when two sides maintain the old original façade. Either way, with no hanging scoreboard over center court, and seats behind one hoop very far from the court, and an overall generic, unimpressive feel to it, Stegeman always will remain amongst the worst arenas in the SEC (if not the worst) and far below the standards of a school with UGA’s athletic budget. It’s embarrassing.
