Tearing down half of a stadium at the end of a season and having it ready nine months later for kickoff was no small task. Fabricating well over 1400 rails of many different styles and shapes of aluminum tube, rod, and bar.
These rails were fabricated, anodized, and installed in less than five months due to having to wait on the demo and rebuild of tons of steel and concrete. Two giant concrete stairs leading into the stadium were full of hundreds of anodized aluminum lighted rails. This not only provided a spectacular grand entrance, but also a well lit safe entrance/exit for all fans.
½’’ thick steel planter plates were also added to allow for plenty of multi areas for a beautiful landscape.
