Canam Steel Corporation (an AISC Member and AISC Certified fabricator), a subsidiary of Canam Group Inc., was awarded a contract of more than $200 million for products and services required for a new multi-purpose stadium in Atlanta, which will be the new home of the Falcons NFL football team.

The contract includes assistance with design-assist and detailing, building information modeling (BIM) and project management services as well as the fabrication and erection of steel components for the stadium and an iconic retractable roof.

The roof is comprised of eight radially organized interlocking panels that form a central overhead oculus. These movable panels will be supported by an extensive network of more than 200 trusses that span up to 735 feet across the length of the stadium. The total construction cost of the stadium is estimated near $1.2 billion. It will seat 71,000 spectators and is scheduled to open for the start of the 2017 football season.

The agreement was signed with HHRM, a joint venture formed by Hunt Construction Group, Holder Construction Company, H.J. Russell & Company, and C.D. Moody Construction Company.

"We’re honored to have the opportunity to work with Arthur Blank and the entire Atlanta Falcons organization as well as the design and construction team made up of HHRM, 360 Architecture, and Buro Happold,” commented Peter Frantz, senior vice president of Canam Group. The contract represents the 74th stadium project that the company has collaborated on.
