A BRAND NEW ARENA UNDER AN HISTORIC ROOF
This transformational project is the most significant private investment in Pacific Northwest sports and entertainment history. In partnership, Oak View Group and the City of Seattle set out to reimagine and redevelop an arena constructed under an historic landmarked roof originally built for the 1962 Seattle World’s Fair.
Laborers’ International Union of North America (LIUNA) members are a skilled and experienced union workforce trained to work safely in the construction and energy industries. As the Official Union Partner of the Seattle Kraken and Climate Pledge Arena, LIUNA Local 242 and its members have played an integral part in the construction of this arena throughout its history; having proudly built the original KeyArena at Seattle Center and assisted other building trades in the venue’s complete reimagination as Climate Pledge Arena.
Specifically, LIUNA members performed work in demolition for the rebuild, asbestos abatement, cleaning (including COVID monitoring, disinfecting and final clean), fireproofing, hod carrying and mason tending, traffic control, concrete placement, tunneling work (including drilling and shotcrete application), and landscaping. LIUNA is proud to continue its partnership with the Seattle Kraken and Climate Pledge Arena.
