Devaney Sports Center

Sinclair Hille Architects, in association with HOK, designed a substantial renovation of the UNL Devaney Sports Center. Originally constructed in 1976, this facility underwent a complete interior renovation and partial exterior upgrade that now provides a state-of-the-art 9,000 seat competition arena, a 1,000 seat natatorium with swimming and diving pools, and a 5,000 seat indoor track. In addition to competition venues, the Devaney Center provides athletic medicine, locker rooms, coaches’ offices, strength training complex and practice gym for wrestling. The Devaney Sports Center improvements provide exceptional performance and training facilities for UNL Athletic Programs and first-class event space for Husker fans.

I enjoyed working with SHA on the Canopy Street Project.  It was a very complex project which required both large scale design thought as well as a focus on small details. Their professionalism impressed me as well as all of the other clients in the project from restaurants, to hotel operations through condo buyers, SHA continued to move the project forward and solve problems with all in mind.  As a licensed architect myself I really appreciated their willingness to partner with me and listen to my design ideas while improving the direction time and time again. Quite simply, Canopy Street would not have been nearly as successful without SHA’s talented staff.
