Stadiums & Arenas

Large stadiums and arenas are impressive structures. Often these projects are built on tight schedules to accommodate some important sporting event. Precast prestressed concrete has been the overwhelming choice for many of these projects.

The technique of post-tensioning precast segments together has allowed this versatile material to form complex cantilever arm and ring beam construction to support the roofs of these structures. Post-tensioning is also commonly employed to reinforce precast concrete cantilevered raker beams, which carry the seating and provide unobstructed viewing of the playing surface.

Mass produced seating units have been manufactured in a variety of configurations and spans to provide for quick installation and long lasting service. Pedestrian ramps, concession, toilet, and dressing room areas can all be framed and constructed using precast prestressed concrete elements.
