Cedar Point Sports Center & Sports Medicine Facility

Sandusky,Ohio


Mosser is serving as Construction Manager on this 400,000 sf complex which includes ten basketball courts (convertible to 20 volleyball courts), a championship arena with retractable seating, a 30,000 sf sports medicine facility and a community recreation center.

One unique feature about this project from a construction standpoint is that there are multiple owners of the project. The facility is a partnership between Cedar Point, The Sports Force, Lake Erie Shores & Islands, the City of Sandusky and Erie County. Each owner has individual requirements for build-outs, billing, reports, and more. This requires the project team to conduct regular meeting and budgeting targets. Another goal the owners had was a short schedule; the grand opening will be before the end of 2019. Decisions made by each owner impacts the others and Mosser is successfully coordinating all details while maintaining friendly, cooperative and cordial relations among all stakeholders.

The complex offers a Family Entertainment Center with rock climbing, arcade, ninja center and party rooms. An elevated track, ticket office, manager’s office, kitchen, café and seating area, team rooms, training and physical therapy rooms, and a mezzanine are also included.

While limited by the CM contract to no self-performance on this project, Mosser was asked to step in and complete the road widening aspect of the project when the selected subcontractor could not complete the work due to unforeseen demands on their schedule with other work. Due to an unexpected rainy spring, Mosser saved crucial schedule time by using a prefabricated skin for the exterior of the facility. Adding to an already complex project, several months after the start of construction the owner changed the location of the main electrical feed from the original specifications to one following the path of a new road alignment.
