The modifications developed by Bailey Edward extended to areas not only for spectators, such as public restrooms, concessions and a hall of fame gallery, but also to areas for athletes such as locker rooms and therapy and injury treatment spaces. Offices and a press box completed the needs applicable to all facility users.
