PC Sports eying more stadium business amid spending spree – San … – The Business Journals

Teams in multiple professional sports leagues are on a building spree, and a San Antonio company that was involved in the construction of AT&T Center more than two decades ago is looking to grab some of that business.
PC Sports, a division of Project Control, has a significant connection to the NBA, having worked on arena projects for several teams, including the Milwaukee Bucks, Phoenix Suns, Charlotte Hornets and Golden State Warriors. But the Alamo City company is locking in more business on other fronts as well. 
Baylor University, which is constructing a new basketball arena, brought PC Sports in on an owners’ representative role for the riverfront development, a more than $200 million project expected to be completed by early 2024. PC Sports is working with Austin Commercial, the contractor for the roughly 7,500-seat arena.
“It’s going very well,” PC Sports President Tom Bond said.
Closer to home, the University of Texas at San Antonio is exploring its sports facilities needs as it prepares to move to the American Athletic Conference this summer. PC Sports was involved in the development of UTSA’s Roadrunner Athletics Center of Excellence, which opened in 2021 and has provided a big lift to the university’s football program. Now, it’s engaged with UTSA in discussions about other potential sports facilities projects, including an analysis of the Convocation Center. 
As far back as 2007, under then Athletics Director Lynn Hickey, UTSA was considering a significant redesign of the aging basketball venue. Addressing that facility has become more pressing with the move up to the AAC.
The scope of those discussions isn’t clear yet.
“We’re not at liberty to say too much,” Bond said, noting, “We feel like we have a great relationship with UTSA.”
Meanwhile, PC Sports has a project in the works in Central America, a professional soccer stadium in Panama City.
And the firm is hopeful an NHL arena project it was involved with in Calgary, Canada, that was put on hold will be resurrected.
“We were selected. We started working for about three months,” Bond said. “The project ran into a dead stop because there was a conflict between the team and the city. We’re hopeful that project is going to come back around.”
In the interim, given its track record, PC Sports has its eye on more potential NBA arena projects. Bond said he believes Oklahoma City and Portland, for example, may be in the market for new or improved buildings in the not-too-distant future.
