Mar. 8

You’ve never seen the Coliseum like this. With renovation work well underway, hundreds of local union laborers will meet with subcontractor hiring teams as construction ramps up on USC’s $270 million renovation project. With an emphasis on local hires, construction firm Hathaway Dinwiddie will bring as many as 2,000 on board over the next two years. Crews will work two shifts on improvements that include a new, five-story structure with suites, loge boxes and club seats. Renovations also include new seating, upgraded concessions, and a fully restored historic peristyle.
