Time-lapse: Crews lay fresh concrete on BJC arena floor

While students are away during the summer, the Office of Physical Plant at Penn State comes to life. With the BJC arena floor coming to the end of its life cycle, officials closed the facility down to refurbish the almost 20-year-old space.  The concrete delivery for the arena floor was logistically challenging because the space to receive the concrete was roughly 11,000 square feet. Twenty-four separate concrete delivery trucks were dispatched to the BJC to keep the concrete pumper constantly at work. Almost 220 cubic yards of concrete were used in the project. This video was gathered from two time-lapse cameras placed in the arena.
