Home to the Orlando City SC of Major League Soccer, Exploria Stadium is a soccer stadium located in downtown Orlando, FL. Due to special considerations for this project, the client turned to CSD as Erection Engineer to provide sealed erection plans and structural engineering for temporary stability during construction.
The roof structure canopy of the building cantilevers over the grandstands to provide cover for visitors. Due to the strict erection tolerances for the canopy geometry, CSD worked with the erector to provide a series of adjustment options to ensure proper setting location to meet project requirements. Traditional temporary bracing along with connection modifications were incorporated to provide temporary stability throughout steel erection. Hurricane contingency plans were developed and implemented due the project’s location to hurricane prone areas.
