PROJECT
Cotton Bowl Renovation – Dallas, TX
YEAR
2009
GALVANIZER
AZZ Galvanizing Services – Crowley, TX
PRODUCT
Brite Zinc (used for touch-up)
OVERVIEW
The original home of the Dallas Cowboys football team, the Cotton Bowl in Dallas, Texas, has recently benefitted from a $50 million project adding an upper deck in each end zone, completing the oval bowl. This renovation has lifted the stadium capacity to the ninth largest in the country. The fabricator, who uses hot-dip galvanized steel for nearly 100% of their projects, knew galvanizing the structure would protect the stadium from the unsightly and potentially hazardous effects of corrosion in the exposed outdoor location. Hot-dip galvanized steel, with Brite Zinc used at welded joints and for touch-up, gives superior protection against corrosion.
PROJECT
Morningside Pedestrian Bridge – Cambridge, Ontario
YEAR
2009
GALVANIZER
Pure Metal Galvanizing
PRODUCT
Brite Zinc (used for touch-up)
OVERVIEW
Arcing for more than a half-mile over one of the busiest highways in Canada, the Morningside Pedestrian Bridge provides cyclists and pedestrians access to the Trans Canada Trail between Cambridge and Kitchener in Ontario. The arching metallic spine of the bridge reaches 25 feet at its highest point, allowing more than 50,000 motorists to pass underneath on Highway 401 each day. Durability was especially important when considering the future of the bridge. Conestoga College, Ontario’s number one ranked public college, is located directly on the west side of the Highway 401 and the Morningside Pedestrian Bridge. With plans to expand by building a second campus on the east side of the highway, more than 10,000 students are expected to regularly use the bridge. Hot-dip galvanized steel will keep this architectural investment beautiful, maintenance-free, and structurally sound well into the future. Brite Zinc was used at welded joints and for touch-up, to give a seamless look with the hot-dip while providing superior corrosion protection.
