Stadiums and arenas are massive facilities that can present an infinite amount of complex challenges. Whether they serve as venues for sports teams, musical entertainment or other functions, timing and reliability are critical to the owners and operators of these structures. Sports seasons must start on time. Massive crowds of people must be able to safely enjoy themselves. The stakes are high, and CTLGroup is the firm to trust to successfully get the job done.
CTLGroup has conducted work on stadiums and arenas all over US, from historic ballparks to brand new stadiums on the brink of opening to the public. CTLGroup USA was engaged to conduct condition assessments at Chicago's Wrigley Field to address safety concerns. The firm's quick and thorough investigation quelled the city's concerns about safety, and helped prevent an unwarranted interruption in the use of the stadium.
At CenturyLink Field in Seattle, CTLGroup USA designed custom-built and installed sensors in the stadium's retractable roof. These sensors measure the post-tensioning forces holding up the roof. They were used to verify these forces during construction, and now are used to monitor structural integrity.
CTLGroup USA also facilitated the rehabilitation of Michigan State University's Spartan Stadium by providing visual condition assessment, nondestructive field testing, laboratory testing, structural analysis, structural strength evaluation and designed structural repairs. Other venues CTLGroup USA has worked on include:
CTLGroup has built a legacy of industry-leading material testing and structural engineering that spans almost 100 years. Our experience combined with a wide range of expert cross-disciplinary testing and consulting capabilities, makes us perfectly suited to help clients at every step of their facility's lifecycle – pre-construction through condition assessment and rehabilitation.
