Alamodome Renovations Win SABJ Community Impact Award

The Final Four Renovations for the Alamodome garnered a Community Impact Award in the San Antonio Business Journal’s Building San Antonio Awards. For the 2018 Final Four, the design/build team of Turner + Marmon Mok + Populous widened the plaza level concourse on the east and west sides, completed a 50,000 SF concession expansion and renovation, added a 24,000 SF press facility addition, updated locker rooms, and enhanced the technology and scoreboard systems of the facility.

Rec/Sports Practice Featured in SA Business Journal

“San Antonio-based Marmon Mok Architects, which was involved in the initial design of the 65,000-seat Alamodome and teamed with Populous on its recent $60 million makeover before the 2018 NCAA men’s Final Four, is looking to parlay that work into an expanded sports practice.

Principle Greg Houston, who heads the firm’s sports practice, said the company is involved in multiple projects, including a roughly $15 million transformation of the Northeast Independent School District’s aging Walker Natatorium. That project led to a similar opportunity with the Southwest Independent School District, which has tapped the firm to design its new aquatics complex.”
