Jade Stadium Redevelopment

The owner of this 275,000-square-foot stadium sought an economic and practical solution for the construction of an additional 14,000 seats and associated facilities at Jade Stadium. Overall height of the stands is 35 meters, dictated by the required seismic performance. Tilt-Up walls were the most cost-effecive solution for the additional seating.

The majority of the architectural finishes are the as-cast concrete surfaces. Shaped radial walls, seating buttresses and supporting walls were the primary structural components provided by the Tilt-Up construction.

“When it comes to thinking outside the box,” says TCA Technical Director Jim Baty, “this project certainly embodies the engineering creativity of Tilt-Up.” “Enclosing space is the most typical use for Tilt-Up construction and certainly signs for building parks and privacy screens have been explored. However, providing the structural components for such a technically challenging project is a fantastic approach to applying Tilt-Up and capitalizing on several of its key features.”
