Populous was involved in assisting Churchill Downs with planning leading up to the 2015 Kentucky Derby on May 2nd. The firm has assisted in improving the guest experience with respect to arrivals, crowd flow and entry. In addition, the Populous team worked with Churchill Downs to provide site and event drawings, integrated event and operations plans for 2016. The firm also designed $4.2 million renovations to the 140-year-old facility that created 20 private open-air Winner’s Circle Suites, remodeled the trackside Winner’s Circle and created a new courtyard to accommodate temporary premium seating for Derby week.
