University of San Diego Jenny Craig Pavilion
Features & Highlights
- Placed more than 5,000 yards of concrete
- Facility complements the campus’s 16th-century Spanish Renaissance architecture
The Jenny Craig Pavilion is a 101,000-square-foot multi-purpose arena that seats 5,100 and provides a home for the Toreros men’s and women’s basketball, women’s volleyball, and intramural and recreational sports teams.
Named after its benefactor and located on a three-acre site, the Pavilion features both fixed and retractable seats in 24 tiers descending from the concourse level, where a 5,000-square-foot lobby and two concession areas are located. Coaches’ offices, locker rooms, a sports medicine facility, a fitness center, and a laundry facility are all located on the arena level. A VIP suite with kitchen facilities are located above the concourse level overlooking the playing court and provide views of the USD campus and Mission Bay.
Sundt’s own crews placed more than 5,000 yards of concrete for the project. At one point during construction, the project had three cranes working concurrently to set a total of five 220-foot span trusses. The project, which is adorned by architectural precast, complements the USD campus’ 16th-century Spanish Renaissance architecture.
