That is what I believe. This project is still a pretty high risk remodel.
I worry about the ability for the in place chiller systems to properly provide enough conditioned air to the Dome and nearby buildings. It would not surprise me to see more chillers built in Stadium West to feed the Dome.
I have it from good authority that the dome renovations will begin immediately after Boeheim retires. No timetable has been given for that, however. My source says that JAB wants to stay through the transition of Buddy assuming the head coach job after he cuts his teeth as an assistant for 4-5 years. So, we're looking at roughly 2026-2027 for start of work.
Disclaimer: none of this is true, as far as I know.
