The 95-year-old complex was undergoing an extensive two-year renovation to update the fan experience as well as build a completely new press box and luxury suites. During the renovation, the landmark needed to continue to host a rigorous schedule of events and had to remain fully functional. The renovation began immediately following the final football game in 2017, but the new press boxes would not be ready until the 2019-2020 season, so the LA Coliseum commission needed a fully functioning, stylish, and quick delivery solution for the 2018-2019 season. The Commission turned to Sightlines Inc., one of Whitley’s distributors for a solution.
Sightlines along with Whitley designed and built a relocatable two-story, eight-module press box that “sits” in front of the ongoing construction of the new press and luxury suites. The location also called for special touches such as building for increased seismic load capacity and increased wind load. To minimize on costs, the California code-compliant units were built in Indiana where California inspections were completed before being shipped out on flatbeds to site.
