The new Mercedes-Benz Stadium is home of the Atlanta Falcons and Atlanta United MLS located in the heart of the city. Willett Engineering, a Gray company, was chosen by these teams and the city of Atlanta to participate in this milestone project.
Willett’s involvement in the project consisted of the rigging, bracing, and shoring of the building façade, including the massive “Window to Atlanta” that gives fans an unobstructed view of the city skyline. Crane positioning for the erection of steel and glass panels was also an integral part of the project due to the proximity to the Georgia Dome and the underground MARTA lines.
At 30 stories high, the stadium can accommodate up to 83,000 people. Its retractable roof and other glass-like exterior walls provide an open-air environment with great views of the city. The 58′ high, 360-degree HD halo video board that encircles the roof delivers a fan experience like no other.
