Construction began on the UPMC Events Center Friday, Oct. 27. The Charles L. Sewall Center is currently being partially demolished to make room for the new multi-million dollar events center, which was announced last year.

The project was supposed to begin following the completion ofΒ the new North Athletic Complex. That recreation center was finished in September and opened to students later that month.

The UPMC Events Center is expected to be completed in 18 months, which would put the projected grand opening of the arena to be April 2019. The UPMC Events Center is the centerpiece of the $50 million project, which included the recreation center.

RMU Sentry Media’s Gage Goulding was live at the scene while construction began Friday morning.
