A Giant for Giants (and Jets) in the Meadowlands
The second largest NFL stadium in the country, this home for the New York Giants and the New York Jets, can seat up to 82,500 fans.
- The massive structure is divided by only four expansion joints separating end zones and sideline structures.
- We cut several months off the construction schedule by designing in BIM to expedite steel procurement and detailing. Construction of the foundation began in May 2007 and the first event was held less than three years later in April 2010.
- The building information model was also used to coordinate precast stadium construction, steel construction, as well as MEP systems, virtually eliminating field issues caused by interferences of components often encountered during construction.
- The environmentally conscious project uses recycled steel and concrete from the demolition of the old stadium. The project diverted 7,000 tons of debris from landfills and used recycled materials in steel piles and aluminum louvers.
