The Philadelphia based company considers itself an environmentally friendly management firm that runs close to 100 facilities worldwide. In Orlando, UCF’s gem of a facility was placed in the hands of General Manager Lexie Boone.

The management team led by Boone is responsible for managing, marketing, and operating the building which hosts UCF Men’s and Women’s Basketball as well as numerous concerts throughout the year. The company’s job has been extended into new cost cutting, environmentally friendly methods of arena management. January marked the start of a new campaign that promises to reduce operating costs while simultaneously promoting a cleaner, healthier environment for the UCF community.

In a recent phone interview with Assistant General Manager of the UCF Arena Ron Rideout, the facility’s newest plan for going green was talked about. Rideout stressed the importance of lowering overall operating costs at the campus arena but the motivation for doing so wasn’t solely monetary. Rideout stated that helping to preserve the environment was also simply the right thing to do. The new plan at the arena, which began in January, included numerous changes to aspects of the arena. Staff on site will be using products made from 100% recycled material, green seal certified cleaning products numerous more recycling bins available to dispose of waste. New ambient light sensors on the service levels will also help reduce wastes in electricity.
