Scotiabank Centre serves as the region’s premier venue for sports and entertainment and is home to the Halifax Mooseheads (Canadian Hockey League), the Royal Nova Scotia International Tattoo, the Halifax Thunderbirds (National Lacrosse League), and the Halifax Hurricanes (National Basketball League of Canada). The facility includes 47 skyboxes, premium seating lounges, and executive suites. The focus of the recent upgrades at Scotiabank Centre was modernization. The existing in-house broadcast systems were still outdated 4x3 standard definition, and the scoreboard no longer met the requirements of upcoming international hockey tournament standards. With an adequate overall budget and funding approval in place, the Halifax Regional Municipality contracted VWMason to complete the design, procurement, and project management for the in-house broadcast systems and centre-hung scoreboard replacement in late January 2019.
