History[edit] The venue was formerly called the CU Events/Conference Center and was renamed to the Coors Events/Conference Center in September 1990 after the Coors family, in recognition of a $5 million gift from the Adolph Coors Foundation.[5] In 2008 with the addition of the basketball offices to the building on the service level, the "Conference" was removed from the name as there were no longer conference rooms in the building. On December 9, 1981, the Grateful Dead played their last Boulder show at the then-named "CUC."[6][better source needed] It is the highest indoor arena in the Pac-12 Conference, approximately 600 feet (180 m) above the Huntsman Center at Utah. Improvements[edit] The most dramatic changes since the building has been opened have come since 2008. After the 2007-08 basketball seasons, the CEC underwent a $200,000 "Floor Lift" with a permanent maple surface was installed that has technology to reduce injuries and fatigue.[5] In April 2008, the men's and women's basketball offices were relocated to the CEC from Folsom Field

second level where the conference rooms were previously located. In the summer of 2010, two new video boards were installed in the southwest and northeast corners. With the new video boards and as part of the new practice facility, a new state-of-the-art production facility was built for the department's award-winning BuffVision office. The production room controls the video boards at both the Coors Events Center

and Folsom Field. A new 44,000-square-foot (4,100 m2) practice facility was opened in August 2011 for volleyball and basketball. The building was just the second athletic facility in the nation and third on CU's campus to earn LEED Platinum Certification, the highest possible by the internationally recognized system developed by the U.S. Green Building Council.[5] In August 2013, a video room for the men's and women's basketball teams was opened for the first time, giving both teams additional meeting space and the ability to watch film more efficiently. In February 2014, a new weight room was finished in the remaining space on the second level where the conference rooms were once located, adjacent to the basketball offices that were relocated in 2008.
