Fiserv Forum – Project Discussion presented by Shruti Sharma, PE of Walter P Moore
Walter P Moore served as the long-span roof design specialist and enclosure
consultant for the new Milwaukee Bucks arena. The 18,000-seat venue features an
iconic curving roof structure and dynamic façade that position the arena among the
most prominent and recognizable buildings in the city. A truly multi-purpose venue,
the arena has been designed to host basketball, hockey, end stage and center stage
concerts, circuses and ice events, and open-floor exhibitions.
Walter P Moore integrated structural and enclosure engineering services to provide a
holistic design solution for the complete building enclosure – performing extensive
comparative studies of seven distinct roof framing confgurations to determine the
most effcient, functional and constructible long-span structural system, then
employing state-of-the-art parametric modeling techniques to optimize truss spans
and depths, and then digitally rationalize the complex geometry of a roof and façade that
merge multiple intersecting curves and surfaces into a continuous, seamless design
