Two Decades & Tough Design
The Sunward team worked alongside the Soccer City owners to create a building that not only met their needs, but harmonized with the other local structures. To do so, designers included a number of special features, among them skylights in the arena’s roof and walls. Due to long hours spent in the facility, daylight was a top request; we manufactured the building with numerous cavities that allow for natural sunlight. For a security feature, we installed 3 Commercial Walk Door Systems fully equipped with panic hardware for access throughout the building and enveloping a safety feature during busy times & large crowds.
Boasting an unobstructed clear-span design ideal for a standing soccer stadium, this expansive prefabricated metal building stands 120’x220’x19’ in size. The building was manufactured with a hefty wind rating and roof snow load to accommodate the harsh weather that frequents this coastal town. The roof, with a 4:12 pitch & designed in Dark Green compliments the steel Stone Beige exterior walls and pays homage with the natural tone of the Massachusetts landscape.
