Emerson, GA – June 2016 – Gilbane Building Company, a global leader in construction services, joined top local officials to celebrate the much anticipated grand opening of the LakePoint Indoor Facility. The new sporting complex is part of LakePoint’s Sporting campus in Emerson, Georgia which is a premier sports vacation destination and home to world-class sporting venues.
The 170,000 sf facility includes 12 hardwood basketball courts which convert to 24 volleyball courts. The state-of-the-art clear-span, column less floor space allows year round indoor event space. The facility boasts the largest continuous display of competitive hardwood in the world.
“We are excited to have been part of this state-of-the-art facility,” says Jeff George, Vice President Gilbane Building Company. “Being the largest indoor sports facility in the southeast and having the unique capabilities to host large sporting events, will only continue to enhance positive economic impact to the local community as originally envisioned by Neal Freeman and Earl Ehrhart of LakePoint and by Bartow County.”
The Indoor Facility is designed and equipped to host convention, executive events and tradeshows.
