Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion
Alaska Airlines Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion is the home for the Huskies men's and women's basketball teams, volleyball team and gymnastics squad. The 2008–09 season marks the 83rd season of service for the multi-purpose facility. The facility was originally completed in December 1927. Wilson James Commissioning renovated the interior of Hec Edmundson Pavilion for $40 million. The renovation lasted 19-months between March 1999 and November 2000. The pavilion's name was also changed; originally slated to be "Seafirst Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion" when the deal was finalized in 1998, it became "Bank of America Arena at Hec Edmundson Pavilion" at the reopening, as B of A had eliminated the Seafirst brand in 2000. The ten-year sponsorship with the bank expired after the 2009–10 season and was not renewed; during the first half of the 2010–11 basketball season the venue was sponsorless and once again known simply as "Hec Edmundson Pavilion." On January 20, 2011, the university approved Seattle-based Alaska Airlines as the new sponsor of Hec Ed.
Proposed Basketball Training Facility
In January 2011, the university announced plans for a new intercollegiate basketball training facility. The project includes a pre-design study for a $62 million basketball training facility for the men’s and women’s basketball programs to be located in the vicinity of the Alaska Airlines Arena. The scope of work may include relocation and replacement of existing intercollegiate athletic facilities related to the new project. The pre-design study will include programming, alternatives, design concepts, cost estimates, and other related reports.
