IMS Technology Services:
The Whitney Athletic Center
IMS helps turn the Whitney Athletic Center into a top-notch facility for the University
of Delaware student athletes and fans. By Alyssa Borelli
THE NEW AV INTEGRATION at the
Whitney Athletic Center at the University
of Delaware (UDel) is a touchdown! The
facility consists of 90,000 square feet of
new space to serve all student athletes
and includes an academic center, weight
room, athletic training and sports medicine
facilities, multi-purpose space and an auditorium.
The Athletic Center also incorporates
a press box structure that provides
premium club seating and amenities as well
as press, facilities and game day operation
booths. The West Stadium was replaced
with premium and club seat options and
concessions as part of the project.
IMS Technology Services, the Garnet Valley,
Pa.-headquartered integration firm, was
selected to provide AV integration services
in the Whitney Athletic Center, including
the lobby, waiting areas, offices, medical
and treatment rooms, concourses, concession
areas, lounges, conference rooms,
the club and bar area, the president's suite,
nutrition and sports medicine rooms, press
corridor, press/media suites, coaching
offices, radio rooms and rack rooms.
A Broadcast Ready Setup
The project began in 2018 and was completed
in November 2021. Each area that
required AV integration was carefully designed
and engineered to fulfill the specific
needs of the space.
IMS, having deep experience and inhouse
knowledge about the design and installation
of professional broadcast systems,
built a broadcast cabling infrastructure in
the Bob Carpenter Center Stadium that
would meet or exceed the expectations
and standards of national and international
media outlets, such as ESPN.
IMS designed and installed a complex

network of single mode fiber, CAT6 data,
video, and audio cabling to ensure that media
crews have tie-ins for camera positions
all around the field. Wiring was run from all
possible camera positions and feeds to the
press box and to the broadcast truck pedestal
to provide a broadcast-ready setup for
media outlets.
The Installation
The project was moving very fast until
COVID-19 restrictions across the globe created
unprecedented supply chain issues. The
supply chain issues caused many delays in
the milestones due to the difficulties in securing
the materials needed by many trades.
IMS' event staging division came to a
grinding halt in 2020 due to event restrictions
related to COVID-19. So, the company
was able to transition many of its staging
employees to its system integration team,
providing additional manpower needed to
complete the project before the start of the
football season.
The IMS teams put in hours during weekends
to get ahead of several snowstorms
during the winter months and the UDel
design team stayed flexible when equipment
changes needed to be made based on
supply chain and product availability.
IMS successfully collaborated with the
teams at HOK Architects/EDiS Construction,
in partnership with Barton Mallow and the
UDel design and construction personnel.
Under the leadership of Tom Hudson, UDel
Construction Manager, the project partners
created a top-notch facility.
