In 2002, The Philadelphia Eagles constructed a 56,000 square foot tension fabric structure to serve as the field house for the NovaCare Complex facility at Broad and Pattison Avenue, across the street from Lincoln Financial Field. It served as the indoor practice facility for the team as well as other activities such as youth football camps, and fan experience events. After 15 years, however, it was time for a renovation. The fabric was dirty and worn, partly a result of the facilities location, close to a busy interstate. Also, the team wanted to correct an oversight in the original design that was limiting the availability of the facility in the summer– the structure was not air-conditioned.
