Project Scope

Reeves Young provided full turnkey site development for this 40-acre site for the new Atlanta Falcons Stadium. Services provided to the general contractor included demolition, erosion control, mass excavation, shoring, storm drainage, sanitary sewer, domestic and fire lines, underground detention, above-ground cistern, pump house, demolition and replacement of a new vehicular bridge, MSE walls, asphalt paving, and signalization.

Reeves Young also installed a cast in place underground detention system to help retain stormwater runoff. This 15’ detention system was 263,538 CCF (1,971,263 GAL). The project team also installed a cast in place above ground cistern. This system captures stormwater runoff and reuses it for irrigation. This detention system is 107,053 CCF (800,756 GAL), and is approximately 19’ in height, 50’ wide, and 117’ long.

Challenge Faced

For this incredibly unique stadium project, Reeves Young was contracted to work with multiple clients and their subcontractors, which required massive amounts of communication and site coordination. The intricacy of design on this project, including the retractable roof system and the roadway used to access the stadium, required critical execution by our team at the beginning of the project for it to be completed successfully in the end. In addition, the project teams faced extreme time constraints, as the stadium had to be fully operational for the Falcons to play their 2017 season.

Solution Provided

Due to the highly sensitive retractable roof system, the project could not have differential settlement across the building footprint. One of the items used to help limit that settlement was a 4’ thick soil-cement application that Reeves Young was contracted to install. Because of the expedited schedule and complicated site logistics, our team also had to get creative to work on the roadway portion of the project which required setting steel girders using multiple cranes. To minimize disruption to the rest of the work being done on the site, much of Reeves Young’s work was completed at night.
