Glenville State College recently opened the Waco Center, a $25 million dollar facility that houses the college’s Land Resources department, a 3000 seat sports arena, and other athletic facilities and offices. In conjunction with the construction of the new Waco Center, Glenville also made significant investment to upgrade Morris Stadium. The Adminstration, Donors and Athletic Staff all wanted these athletic venues to provide a one-of-kind experience for fans attending Pioneer athletic events. In order to do this Glenville State College partnered with Nevco to provide state-of-the-art scoreboards, video displays, and led fascia in these venues. Their goal was to give Glenville fans an exhilarating 360 sporting experience.
As Glenville State College was drawing up the plans for the new Waco Center they were uncertain of exactly what scoring and display elements would make the biggest impact to the new arena and renovated football stadium. While the architects and consultants involved in the project were experts in the designing and building of the new facility, they were not experts in the design and building of the scoring and display equipment that would go in these new facilities. As a result, Glenville State College removed this element from the architect’s scope of work and chose instead to work directly with Nevco. The cross-functional team of scoring and display experts at Nevco then worked tirelessly designing the optimum solution that met the needs and budget of Glenville State College. This team then managed the entire project from design to manufacturing through installation and training. The end result was an impressive integrated scoring and display system that both complemented and enhanced two outstanding facilities…the Waco Center and Morris Stadium.
BASKETBALL: Encompassing the entire length of the basketball court on both sides, the high resolution LED Fascia is just one component of the new scoring solutions installed at The Waco Center. The main wall of the new arena features an Nevco 11 x 22’W High Definition Video Display, Nevco Intelligent Caption Scoreboard with Electronic Stat Panels and a giant 7’ rear lit Glenville State Logo. If that wasn’t enough to get the fans fired up, Glenville College also added a huge center hung 4 Face Nevco Intelligent Caption scoreboard with custom rear-lit “Waco Center” script letters. To round out the ultimate scoring and display system Nevco added floor level scoreboards, LED end of period lights, shot clocks with game time and 5 locker room clocks.
FOOTBALL: Mounted nearly 80’ in the air atop the VIP suite, the high resolution 11 x 19’W LED video display at Glenville College’s Morris Stadium provides all fans in the stadium with a crystal clear image of the live action in play. The video display is flanked by a custom designed Intelligent Caption scoreboard and topped off with a decorative truss and a rear lit Glenville State College logo. As an added convenience to the fans, coaches and players Glenville State College also added a Nevco 32’ Intelligent Caption scoreboard on the opposite end of the field along with a new set of Nevco Delay of Game Clocks and 3 locker room clocks.
