Attends Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony to Celebrate Renovations

Published Monday, April 22, 2019


Sarasota, FL – Representatives from Quest Design Group (QDG) attended the grand opening and dedication of the renovated Sailor Circus Arena to experience first-hand how their contributions have transformed the iconic building located on Bahia Vista Street. The $4.5 million renovation of the 28,050 square foot building upgraded the restrooms, lighting, flooring, catering space, and for the first time in it’s 70-year history, air conditioning for the entire arena.

The scope of work required QDG to design the HVAC system, estimated at 170 tons, evaluate the existing electrical service and upgrade the system as needed to support the new air conditioning and lighting systems, provide the fixtures and plumbing design for the new ADA restrooms and expanded restrooms at the west end of the arena, and design the fire protection system for the entire arena building, including hydraulic calculations and locating the fire alarm devices in accordance with the Florida Building Code.


“We couldn’t be more pleased to attend an event like this one,” says Robert Cave, Vice President of Operations for QDG’s Sarasota office, “Our team works on renovation projects that improve our community all the time, but it’s a rare treat to sneak out of the office and go to the circus!”
