The Man Who's Building Barclays

Brooklyn Sports & Entertainment

Bob Sanna is the man in charge of construction at the Barclays Center, a native Brooklynite who's also a City College grad.  His resume' is filled with some of the borough's biggest projects but he's most proud of the arena. "There’s a special feeling in having a hand in building a sports and entertainment arena where memories are made and history happens in my native Brooklyn."

Now 60% complete, Barclays will be unique in that the court --aka the "event level"-- will be 25' below street level, something he says was Bruce Ratner's idea after climbing the "endless escalators" of Madison Square Garden.  And although there's controversy about construction unions not getting as much of the arena towers work as once thought, the arena, says Sanna, is a "parade of 40 trades."
