The design of the new stadium incorporated a low friction domed membrane roof. During the winter months a combination of snowfall, top and side loading from wind resulted in avalanche hazard.
Methods and Solution
An engineered avalanche fence (design – build) was installed along the circumference of the roof perimeter. Roped access techniques were used to provide positioning and safety for this unique project.
Tangiers completed this project within the time and budget parameters as laid out by PCL. After realizing our team’s rope access capabilities, we were asked to perform numerous other jobs in and on the stadium roof system.
