Chase Center (Arena)

Client : Kendall Heaton Architects
Completion Date : 2017


The Chase Centre is the highly anticipated mixed use, multi-purpose arena set to be the impressive new home for the five time NBA champions, the Golden State Warriors. Situated along the coastline of Mission Bay in San Francisco, the Chase Center will provide a state of the art indoor venue designed to host a range of major events from sports and concerts, to conventions and shows. The arena will be made complete with an approximated 3 acres of landscaped public space and new retail outlets to serve the surrounding community.
Led by our modelling and analytical expertise, Momentum supported the arena during the preliminary design stages with crowd flow and traffic modelling to ensure the best design provisions were made to improve the circulation of visitors and spectators before, during and after event times. As part of our involvement during the preliminary design stages of the Chase Center, Momentum led in the preparation of traffic models which incorporated salient elements of the stadium parking area to help assess the anticipated impacts of event day traffic on the surrounding highway network. Helped by our ability to provide robust and detailed operational car-parking models, we were able to aid the design team in their understanding of possible queues outside the stadium whilst enabling internal stakeholders to better estimate the demand for the shuttle services and coaches.

Spaces For People

Chase Arena is a contemporary example of how we must place a focus towards visitor experience. The arena successfully provides desirable areas for people to gather, socialise and spend quality time experiencing the numerous facilities available within the picturesque grounds. The external area and the park along the waterfront provide a good communal area for all including the spectators.

Efficient Operations

Helped by our robust and detailed strategies prepared to inform the stadium operators, our crowd flow assessment provisions contribute to the effective management of minimising the impact of event traffic on the surrounding areas.
