In August 2015 our crews moved onsite to install numerous 40+ ft. deck high walls, concession areas, AV niches in the restrooms and ceiling systems throughout the upper and lower level suites and the upper and lower level concourses.

As a design build project, the construction documents changed continuously throughout the job, which can cause production to slow, compressing the schedule, which creates a challenging work schedule. In order to alleviate potential problems and keep everyone informed, our crews knew that clear communication was essential for not only our crew and the General Contractor, but to other trades onsite as well. Our onsite crew utilized technology to stay up to date on changes as they come by connecting to Helix via iPads. With an opening date of September 2, 2017, our trained staff were ready and willing to complete tasks outside our contracted scope of work.

Innovation in construction techniques and materials

Mercedes-Benz Stadium is tracking to be the first professional sports stadium to receive LEED Platinum certification. The stadium meets and exceeds LEED requirements for water conservation using rainwater recapture/reuse throughout the building and energy optimization through solar panels, electric vehicle charging stations, LED lighting and open air and natural light options. Our team utilized iPads to stay up to date on changes to drawings that were made throughout the project. A Knaack box was used during layout and was utilized through-out the project.

Dedication to client service and customer care

Pre-bid, mid-job and post-job reviews were used to keep our team and our contractors up to date on changes and updates to the status of on-going work in various areas. Doing this helped communicate and eliminate those surprise moments that can derail a project and cause a loss of production, time and money.

We made sure to adhere to MAREK's safety program, as well as HHRM’s safety policy to ensure safety on site, every day. Collaboration between team members was taken into deep consideration and helped strengthen relationships and respect. Utilizing HELIX via iPads helped us stay up to date on bulletins and eliminated the need to tear down and rebuild, therefore eliminating stress for the General Contractors.

This project was the first place winner of the AGC Build Georgia Awards.
