Cost of the basketball court is $105,000.00.
Each basketball stanchion weighs about 3,300 lbs and can be anchored to the basketball ground to stop it from being tipped over.
Each internet on the basketball aims will be replaced every 5 matches or as required.
There are 233 bits to the basketball ground – each weighing about 185 lbs. The weight of the basketball flooring is 41,625 lbs.
There are 149 panes of .5″ thick glass that surrounds the hockey rink, weighing between 50 and 250 pounds a piece. It takes 2 forklifts and 8 people 45 minutes to “hang” the entire rink.
Starting with the 07-08 NHL season, Pepsi Center will be one of only 6 buildings in the country that has the newest, state of the art dasher board system. The system allows for more consistent puck play, and features a “soft cap” that will cushion a player’s impact into the boards. This new system also allows for easier installation and removal of the boards for other Pepsi Center events.
Each net hung on the ends of the rink has a lifespan of only 33 games.
For other events in the building, the ice is covered with approximately 600 pieces of a 1″ thick fiberglass board.
The Mammoth carpeting is composed of 14 – 15′ wide rolls of Astroturf and is .75″ thick.
It requires 12 people just 25 minutes to put the field.
On February 3, 2007, it required the Conversion team a construction list of 50 minutes to change the stadium floor over from a day Avalanche game to a night Mammoth game.
