Civic Arena Demolition

Langan, an expert on demolition operations, was hired to prepare documents and provide bidding assistance and oversight services for the planned demolition of the Civic Arena (formerly the Civic Auditorium and Mellon Arena), as part of a public bid solicitation process. The 130,000-square-foot, 17,000-seat arena, built in 1961 and nicknamed “The Igloo,” was the former home of the Pittsburgh Penguins NHL hockey team and has a unique retractable roof.
