AJP Introduces a
One of a Kind LED Display
for University of Missouri
COLUMBUS, MISSOURI – FEBRUARY 2015
Anthony James Partners (AJP) is proud to have worked with the University of Missouri to upgrade Mizzou Arena with a truly unique LED center hung. A market leader in A/V consulting and representation services, AJP supported Ownership by successfully managing the design, procurement and construction oversight from concept to completion.
The Tiger’s unique logo and Missouri’s visual identity were the inspiration for Mizzou Arena’s new 23,500-pound center hung. A distinct and identifiable design was a priority for the school. Branding elements were used to create interesting architectural features, highlighted by LED neon-style lighting accents. From top to bottom, the center hung features a custom venue identification ring, four 6mm, 11×18’ LED screens, a sponsorship ring, and a 10mm LED lower ring. The structure was deployed with six sponsor positions, but built with the capability of upgrading to twelve.
With fall exhibition games around the corner, the University needed a quick turnaround. The vendor was on-sight for ten days, with minimum disruption to the school. As an Owner’s Representative, AJP stayed involved through the construction, installation, and finally the commissioning of the product to ensure the University of Missouri were more than satisfied with their product.
BEST PRODUCTS AT THE BEST PRICE
AJP’s comprehensive design and detailed financials enabled the University of Missouri to make legitimate and strategic budget determinations and design decisions in advance of the procurement process. As a result, the University knew precisely what the project would look like and cost before it went out to bid.
By clearly defining materials, finishes and construction methodology, AJP reduced bidding options and alternates to a minimum. This level of specification drove a highly competitive bid process. Vendor proposals were descoped and scrutinized, putting the University of Missouri in the advantageous position of getting the best pricing and products available.
“We are pleased with our new, state of the art scoreboard and the job AJP did to get us a quality product that was unique to our venue and communicated our brand. You know, when you see our venue and new scoreboard, that you are watching the University of Missouri.”
Tim Hickman, Executive Associate Athletic Director, University of Missouri
