The UWG Coliseum was recently renovated with a new floor creating a one-of-a-kind look for the home of the Wolves.
Cole Stratton, assistant director of the Coliseum, shared a time-lapse video of the floor make-over and noted that the trend of staining different areas of the court different colors has only been around for the last couple of years and can be very challenging due to the density of maple gym flooring as compared to residential maple flooring.
The project was completed by Stevens Gymnasiums, a family owned and operated company that has been in business for 20 years. UWG initially designed the court from which Stevens Gymnasium created large vinyl sticker stencils used to paint the lettering and logos.The products used on the court included DuraSeal stain in Nutmeg and Golden Oak for the 3-Point Area and Lanes. The paint is by Bona Courtlines and the polyurethane used is Bona Sport.
Next time you are at the Coliseum, take a moment to admire the outstanding work that is a hallmark of UWG pride.
August 29 is National College Colors Day. Get out your red and blue and wear it with pride!
Let's paint UWG campus red and blue to show our support for our Wolves.
