When a structural engineer posted data about its big new contract, it made a little news. Thornton Tomasetti just added a page on its website about Barclays Center, noting the arena will be 750,000 sq. ft. In the arena master plan, published last year, it was 675,000. The difference? The firm notes Barclays will have "an ice floor for hockey". Brett Yormark has told Newsday, "Yes, we can play hockey there".
